A Minecraft map can often be a great way to learn more about the world. Minecraft: Education Edition recently started releasing maps that not only help players find something new in the game, but offer the opportunity to explore historical moments or find a way to learn about important things like climate activism.
The most recent example of these maps is LatinExplorers: A Hispanic Heritage Journey, which shows some important figures who represent the power of the community and other things. However, we also saw a map about Nobel Peace Prize winners and even one about the Mangrove Restoration Project. These are all great ways to learn something new, and this new map is just as important.
Minecraft: Frozen Planet 2 is being developed in partnership with BBC Earth and is designed to take players through the brutal environments of the Arctic and Antarctic and teach them about the unique ecosystems that exist there. The video teaser below just shows the penguins – but honestly, what else does anyone need?
Experience life through the eyes of the stunning animals that inhabit some of the world’s coldest regions.

The map itself was released on September 21st and will likely be free on the Minecraft Marketplace, and will also be playable in the Education Edition. We’re not sure if David Attenborough is involved, but the guy is a living legend; and even if he didn’t, things like this wouldn’t be possible without him leading the charge and lending his magnificent voice to such documentaries.
