Xbox Game Pass Soft Launches New Subscription Tier. The soft launch of a new subscription tier for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has been announced by Microsoft today. We initially learned about Microsoft’s plans to develop a new family Game Pass plan just a few months ago, with the intention of releasing it sometime in 2022. And although while the Game Pass family plan has not yet been fully released, Microsoft is currently trialing this version of the service in a few regions.

Microsoft said it is in the process of previewing this family plan version of Xbox Game Pass in a new article on the official Xbox website. Only the Xbox Insiders of Ireland and Colombia have access to this service’s beta edition. However, if testing goes well, it’s anticipated that this tier will soon be accessible to everyone in additional regions.

Xbox Insiders can start testing a scheme that lets many individuals share Game Pass Ultimate advantages today in Colombia and Ireland, according to Microsoft’s announcement regarding the new Game Pass service. By allowing you to add up to four people to your subscription, each with their own unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate titles, content, and benefits, this makes it even simpler to play the finest Game Pass games with friends and family across console, PC, and cloud.

The cost of this new version of Xbox Game Pass is currently the main point of contention. Although Microsoft hasn’t yet specified a price for this family-friendly service tier, it is rumored that it will be more expensive than Game Pass Ultimate. In particular, just 18 days of this Game Pass family plan would be included in the $15 monthly cost of Game Pass Ultimate. This conversion rate leads to the assumption that the new tier’s monthly retail price will be around $25.
