Minecraft & BBC Earth Launch Frozen Planet II Content

BBC Earth and Mojang have teamed up again to bring several packs of content to Minecraft with Frozen Planet II.

Mojang has once again partnered up with BBC Earth as they have launched Frozen Planet II for Minecraft as educational content. The move comes as the actual docuseries it's based on will start airing in North America on January 28th, so to bring some of that to the game, they will release five Minecraft worlds inspired by each episode. Completely free on both Minecraft Bedrock Edition and Minecraft Education. The series has already been a popular one with players and educators, so we're guessing this will end up having the same kind of response. What's more, BBC Earth and Mojang Studios will share the DLC worlds with members of the European Parliament in Brussels this February. We got more info on all of the content for you below, along with a trailer showing parts of it off.
