US college students can shave half off a Max subscription. As long as you can confirm your active student status, youll get a 50 percent discount on the Max With Ads monthly plan. Usually $10, youll only pay $5 each month to stream classic and current HBO series (and more). The promotion is through a partnership with UNiDAYS, a (strangely capitalized) service that verifies college and university student status. The company has also partnered with Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Uber Eats, Nike and more. After successfully verifying your status, the promotion will last for 12 months. But youll have the chance to re-verify your student status every year as long as youre eligible to keep the discount. Once youre in your last year with no plans to head to another school, youll graduate to the hard-knock life of $10 ad-supported streaming plans. Max lets you stream classic HBO series like The Sopranos, The Wire, Sex and The City, Game Of Thrones, Six Feet Under and more. You also get current-run content from HBO, Warner Bros., DC, HGTV and Food Network. These include series and films like The Last of Us, Dune: Part Two, House of the Dragon, Barbie and Euphoria. Youll also be able to stream the upcoming The Batman spinoff The Penguin, costarring Colin Farrell with his fat suit and a bunch of prosthetics. Once youre verified through UNiDAYS, youll receive a promotional code. Just follow the instructions you get with the code to begin your subscription.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/us-college-students-can-take-half-off-a-max-subscription-163906242.html?src=rss

Overwatch 2 fans who are already jonesing for something new after the recent Transformers crossover wont have to wait long. Blizzard has spilled the beans about the next hero thats coming to the game, and youll be able to try her out as soon as this weekend. Her name is Juno and shes a support. The publisher teased this hero back at BlizzCon 2023 (when she was referred to only as Space Ranger) and in-game over the last few weeks. Now, her spacecraft has landed on this colorful version of near-future Earth Juno is the games first playable Martian character. A gameplay trailer gives a sense of Junos abilities and how they work. Her primary weapon is called the Mediblaster. It appears to work in a similar way to Anas Biotic Rifle in that it can heal allies and damage enemies, though it's not clear whether there's a different fire mode for each. One of her abilities, the Pulsar Torpedoes, can lock onto multiple targets to dish out healing and damage too. Unlike Ana, though, Juno has traversal abilities. With Glide Boost, she can soar through the air. She can also temporarily provide herself and her teammates with a speed boost and perhaps the ability to jump higher thanks to her Hyper Ring. As for Junos ultimate, that's called Orbital Ray. Its a beam emanating from a satellite that moves across the map that heals allies and boosts damage. The specifics of how exactly all the abilities work haven't been announced, so well likely have to hold on until Juno arrives in the game for the full lowdown. Fortunately, that will be a short wait. Juno will be available in all modes except Competitive for a trial weekend that runs from July 19 until July 21. The No Limits mode will be in the Arcade, so chances are likely that well see two teams of five Junos fighting each other as players get to grips with the newcomer. On the rare occasions I play anything other than Mystery Heroes, I usually play the support role, so I cant wait to try out Juno. She has a great look and the makings of an excellent kit, as long as its smartly balanced. Juno will join the lineup permanently when season 12 of Overwatch 2 starts on August 20.

Proton Mail has a new AI-powered feature that could help it keep pace with the artificial intelligence tools Google and Microsoft offer for their email services. Proton Scribe is an AI writing assistant that can help you compose and clean up your drafts. Scribe was designed with privacy in mind the assistant can't train on your inbox data, as Proton Mail has a zero-access approach to encryption. Proton doesn't save or log anything from your email drafts either. According to Proton, a writing assistant was one of the most-requested features in a recent user survey. The company designed it as a secure alternative to other generative AI options. Scribe can be run locally if your system is compatible. Otherwise, you can run it on Proton's no-log servers. The assistant is powered by open-source models and code. As such, Proton says the tool itself is open-source and that independent researchers are free to carry out privacy and security audits. Scribe can be accessed by clicking the pencil icon in the Proton Mail composer. After telling the tool what you want to say in an email, it will create a draft for you. You'll be able to use the Shorten and Proofread options to condense and clean up your draft. There's also the option to make the tone of your email more formal with the click of a button. You can review and tweak your drafts before sending them. Proton says Scribe only fully supports English for now and it's rolling the assistant out to eligible users. Visionary and Lifetime subscribers will have access at no extra cost. Those on a Proton Business plan Mail Essentials, Mail Professional or Proton Business Suite can try Proton Scribe for free for 14 days. After that, the tool costs $3 per month per user.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/proton-mail-now-has-a-privacy-focused-ai-writing-assistant-155816223.html?src=rss

Nintendo just announced its own first-party Joy-Con controller charging station, which releases on October 17. This is an obvious boon for couch co-op addicts, as you can have two Joy-Cons charging on the dock and another two charging via the console at the same time. Nintendos charging station also integrates with the companys retro wireless NES gamepads, which are primarily used with Nintendo Switch Online games. The Joy-Con Charging Stand (Two-Way) accessory draws power from the Switchs dock, via the USB-C port, or any other power adapter. The vertical support can also be removed to make it more portable, another bonus for those couch co-op sleepovers. Nintendo hasnt released any pricing information yet to go along with the October release date. Its currently set for a launch in Europe and Japan. We reached out to Nintendo and asked about a US release and will update this post when we hear back. October 17 is the same day that Super Mario Party Jamboree launches, so that would make for some good accessory-based synergy. Charge your #NintendoSwitch Joy-Con controllers and Nintendo Entertainment System controllers with the Joy-Con Charging Stand (Two-Way) accessory, available October 17th. pic.twitter.com/qv6k8GAm6e Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) July 18, 2024 Its worth noting that the Nintendo Switch is over seven years old. This accessory will be released 2,785 days after the console originally launched. Heck, the Switch 2 (or whatever it ends up being called) will probably hit store shelves early next year. What Im saying is that this would have been a lot more useful six or seven years ago. Better late than never? This is likely to be the Switchs final holiday season. Theres a new Legend of Zelda game hitting on September 26, along with a themed console. Another big holiday-adjacent title is Mario & Luigi: Brothership, which comes out on November 7.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/nintendo-finally-made-a-first-party-joy-con-charging-station-152326371.html?src=rss

It was a shame to see 1047 Games putting Splitgate on ice back in 2022. The studio did a great job of freshening up the competitive arena shooter genre by adding portals (think: Quake meets Portal), but it moved on to a new project. We now know thats going to be Splitgate 2, a free-to-play sequel thats coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S next year. 1047 Games is going bigger in all kinds of ways this time around, including with a much larger development team. A group of 20 first-time game developers created Splitgate, which started as a school project. The team is now more than 150 strong and features devs with experience on the likes of Call of Duty, Overwatch, Halo, Valorant and League of Legends. The sequel is being built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5. It will have three factions you can pick from based on your preferred play style and tactics. The Aeros are agile, Sabrasks are all about power and Meridians can manipulate time.  There will be many areas, weapons and modes to check out, though the bulk of the action will be in four versus four combat. A debut trailer gives some idea of what to expect and more details will be revealed in August. Fans can check out a free comic series and unlock in-game collectibles through the Splitgate 2 companion app for iOS and Android. 1047 Games has a tough act to follow since Splitgate was very well received and it proved popular it had more than 22 million downloads. Its a strong foundation to build on, though, and the Splitgate 2 trailer (despite being a cinematic rather than gameplay-focused one) looks very promising.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/splitgate-2-is-coming-to-pc-and-consoles-in-2025-144400499.html?src=rss
