  1. Battlefield 5 via game pass not home sharing


    Battlefield 5 will not play for account I home share with.

    We can homeshare every game on gamepass but this one.

    When they try to play online, it says we need to upgrade from trial version.

    I have been through customer support with xbox and ea. They punt to eachother back and forth, not helping.

    I have reinstalled, restarted, switched home xbox’s, deleted local save data, and downloaded from both game pass and ea play.

    I believe xbox is accountable because I pay them for game pass and that is the delivery method, and havent directly paid ea for the game.

    Very frustrated with both xbox and ea for the lack of results and accountability.

    Can anyone help?

    :)

    Game Pass for Family

    The Xbox One Home system works by sharing your Gold and Game Pass to all gamertags on your Home console. You can learn how to set up Home via this link https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/hardware-network/console/my-home-xbox

    On any other console you would only need to have your gamertag signed in for other people to share your Gold and Game Pass.

    The sharing feature does not extend to PC games or Game Pass

    Xbox Live sharing

    Thanks for reaching out, BuchyM!

    To clarify, a Game Pass membership would not share via the Home console - games that are installed via Game Pass will share, but the account that owns the Game Pass membership would need to be the one to download the game.

    To make sure, do both you and that friend show active Xbox Live Gold memberships when you sign in and check your
    Subscriptions Page?

    Xbox gold for family

    Unfortunately Xbox live discontinued their family membership to pursue game pass, however I do recommend that you have the 2 adult accounts with the Xbox live membership and share with the child accounts via home share feature on consoles

    Game pass family sharing

    Hi PiggybackCarrot,

    as I know: Only the subscriber can download the PASS Games but after it is at the console, everyone can Play (one via HOME sharing and one via subscriber Logged in console)

    Hope this helps and please keep us informed

    When I go into settings to make my Xbox one my home console and it won't allow me.

    In order to prevent people from excessively sharing their game library with multiple people, the game publishers wanted to limit the amount of times games can be shared.

    The Home Console sharing is normally only used to share your games with family members in your own home, but can be "abused" to share your games (and Gold membership) to a friend if you want to.

    But you can only do that 5 times during 365 days (previously you could change the Home Console setting only 3 times).

    If you reached that limit, you can try to contact the official support via
    https://support.xbox.com/contact-us
    and hope they allow you one additional Home Console change. After that, you'll have to wait until 365 days have passed since the first Home Console change.

    information about the Home Console sharing and the limits is here
