Man of Medan Gets Free Friend’s Pass and The Curator’s Cut is Available to Owners


  • Friend’s Pass: Enjoy one playthrough of Shared Story mode for free with a friend that doesn’t own the game
  • All owners of Man of Medan can download The Curator’s Cut pre-order bonus for free
  • The Friend’s Pass is a limited-time offer for Man of Medan

We’ve been delighted by the response to Man of Medan and wanted to celebrate by announcing an exciting free update that we are releasing for the holiday season! It’s called Friend’s Pass and allows you and a friend one complete playthrough of Man of Medan’s Shared Story mode for free – and only one of you needs to own the full version of the game!

So how does it work? Owners of Man of Medan will receive this feature in an upcoming patch, so all you need to do is grab that when it goes live on November 27. Once updated, you’ll be good to go.

What does your friend need to do? Again, very simple. Just make sure they download the Trial version of the game, which can easily be found on the Microsoft Store. Xbox Live Gold is required for both players to experience the full game together using Friend’s Pass.

Once you have the latest version of the game running, and your friend has the Trial version running, you are ready to start. If you are the owner of the full game simply go into the main menu, select Don’t Play Alone and choose Shared Story. You will be prompted as the host to invite your friend and you will be asked if you want to use your Friend’s Pass. Once your invitation is accepted you can experience an entire playthrough of the Shared Story mode with your friend! Please note that once you have used your Friend’s Pass it will have been consumed and no longer be available.

Note: The Friend’s Pass is a limited-time offer and will only be available to download at least one month after initial release on November 27, 2019.

We are really looking forward to even more players experiencing the Shared Story mode. It’s a very different experience to playing alone and we really hope both you and your friend enjoy the game.

We’ve got more good news! We are delighted to announce that the Curator’s Cut, previously a pre-order bonus only, is available for free to everyone from today! The Curator’s Cut is available for download on the Xbox Store and when installed will automatically unlock once you have completed the main story. The Curator’s Cut allows you to play alternative scenes that were not available in your first playthrough, giving a different perspective on the events of your story.

We hope you enjoy Friend’s Pass and the Curator’s Cut!
