    Do you have to pay to play local Minecraft multiplayer on the Xbox One?


    I purchased Minecraft through a digital code in-store and I am currently game sharing with my wife’s Xbox in the other room of our house. Both consoles are connected to the same wireless network, and we both have the same error message that say our Microsoft accounts are set up in a way that does not allow multiplayer. We have changed all privacy setting to ‘Allow’ and ‘Everyone’, but the error messages have yet to go away. We cannot play multiplayer of any kind together, and are wondering if we have to pay a monthly fee to play online multiplayer?

    :)

    Hi Brookes! I'm Rostom, an Independent Advisor. I will be glad to help you here.

    To play online and multiplayer on Xbox consoles, you must be subscribed to either Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

    I am new to Minecraft java edition and I can't play multiplayer

    Hey there, JohnathanShaw

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community forums

    You will need to pay for Xbox membership to play online with others, including your brother. You can, however, play multiplayer locally, however you will need to play Minecraft on an Xbox console, or you both have Minecraft Java Edition.

    Hope this helps,

    Nathan

    Realms or Multiplayer cross platform not working on minecraft

    Thanks, that's the problem

    In order to play any multiplayer / online mode on Minecraft you need Gold / Ultimate

    The only modes that doesn't require it are local multiplayer and single player.

    XBF Amber F answer:

    "Minecraft itself may be played in an offline capacity without the need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription; however, if your son wishes to utilize the following aspects of game play within Minecraft, he then would need a subscription:
    Realms
    Connecting to servers
    Cross-platform play
    For local multiplayer gaming, you don’t need an Xbox Live Gold subscription"

    Game accessibility issue after EA subscription ends in XBOX one S.

    Thank you Reactor leak. Do you have any idea about difference between xbox live local multiplayer and xbox local multiplayer and xbox live local co-op. Does it require xbox live gold pass to play as local multiplayer (using 2 controllers)

    Can i synch worlds I create on Minecraft Xbox 360 edition to my Android tablet?

    Because Xbox 360 edition for minecraft is not supported anymore, I think you are only able to play local co-op instead of online multiplayer. I could be wrong though. If minecraft Xbox 360 does support multiplayer co-op, then the problem could be that
    your kids have child accounts and their permissions for online multiplayer is turned off. I hope this helps!
