BBC Earth and “Minecraft” Education have announced that they are teaming up once again to launch “Planet Earth III Minecraft World.”

The “Planet Earth III Minecraft World” features immersive landscapes, animals and game-based learning resources, inspired by stories in the latest series from BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit.

“Minecraft” Education provides educational content for schools globally, allowing students to learn about a wide variety of subjects via creative gameplay.

“Planet Earth III Minecraft World” will see players step into the realms of the natural world to experience the struggles and triumphs of survival while playing as a series of creatures, including the great white shark, the Arctic wolf, a leopardess and more. Exploring the way these animals’ lives are intertwined by playing as both predator and prey, parent and offspring, friend and ally, they will discover the precarious balance of survival.

“We are delighted to partner with ‘Minecraft’ Education and that children globally will have the opportunity to interact with stories inspired by the ‘Planet Earth III’ series through immersive gameplay, while learning more about our fragile natural world and the creatures we share this planet with,” says Matt Brandon, series producer for ‘Planet Earth III,’ BBC Studios Natural History Unit.

"’Minecraft’ Education is delighted to extend our partnership with BBC Earth, building on our work in ‘Frozen Planet II,’” says Justin Edwards, director, learning experiences, Minecraft Education. “The new experience of the natural world in ‘Planet Earth III’ brings us closer to the animals and their surrounding environment. In this world, you will learn about animals from different continents, across sea, sky, and land, and how they survive and thrive."

Available in 29 languages for both “Minecraft” Education and Bedrock in the “Minecraft” Marketplace, “Planet Earth III Minecraft World” is now available globally.
