If the value for Xbox Game Pass was not enough for you with the number of games already available, Microsoft is doubling down when it comes to the ‘Ultimate’ tier bundling trials for popular services. Earlier this spring, users could redeem a full month trial for Paramount+ in anticipation for the Halo Television Series.
But it did not end there. Came March around the same time included Marvel Unlimited. In that, players can entertain themselves with a vault of Marvel Comics reading with a 30-day trial for being an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber. The most recent promotion is pointed at AppleTV/Apple Music offering a three-month trial for both this past month.
Now this week, Microsoft reveals its pledge for batting mental health with a new partnership. Teaming up with Calm, users can now indulge in a three-month trial of the service’s ‘Premium’ tier which welcomes additional benefits.
Now, players everywhere will have a new tool to improve their general wellness, all within two video game universes. Calm, the #1 app for sleep, meditation and relaxation is partnering with Xbox to bring the first-ever video game-themed soundscapes to the platform. Officially available on December 7, players can immerse themselves and enjoy the meditative sounds of whirling waves and chattering birds from the ocean expanse of Sea of Thieves and the ambient alien sounds of Zeta Halo from Halo Infinite both available through Calm Premium.Ron Brown, 343 Industries Quality of Life Program Manager
“To ensure players can listen to the new soundscapes with ease, we’re also announcing a new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perk. Starting today, Ultimate members can receive three months of Calm Premium for free, and then 50% off their first year subscription, when they sign up (new Calm Premium members only).
“The partnership with Calm is part of Xbox’s ongoing commitment to supporting players’ mental health and connecting them with resources to support their well-being. According to Calm, 81% of people who use Calm 5 or more times per week reported an improvement in their stress levels, as did 68% of people who engaged with the app only once or twice per week.”
