Xbox one has the same type of features that ps4 has with the primary ps4 feature. But we are in the same boat anyway.
I took my concerns to Microsoft as well and essentially got the same answer. That it is a publishers decision how the game licenses work. And he directed me to the Xbox store page for the Battleborn season pass where they have the text (all the way at the bottom) that it is for use for a single account.
I explained that I was specifically lied/misinformed by the 2K/gearbox support 2 months earlier that I would NOT need a second purchase and my microsoft support guy basically said sorry.
The only possibly beneficial thing he did do was repeatedly say everything from our conversation would be documented and passed along to the proper channels.
@JoeKGBX is there any chance of possible clarification on this issue? I reopened my support ticket 3 days ago and have yet to get an answer there either.
I have never encountered any other split screen / local coop / couch coop game to handle additional story or map dlc this way.
Really I just don’t appreciate being lied to.
