Microsoft Offers Free Access to Education Collection Through June

"The Human Eye" is a world where players explore a giant replica of a human eye absorbing light, crafted from glass windows, diamonds and glowstone.

We've heard it more and more in the last several weeks; we're all in this together.

"While these are unprecedented times we are living in, I have no doubt that we'll come through this experience stronger than ever". Please stay home so that you're safe.

Microsoft is offering free Minecraft content to help millions of children stuck at home due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Families are trying to navigate the need to help their children with distance learning and balance that with taking time to have fun. "We want to do our part to help keep young minds sharp and stimulated", the company said in a statement.

Disney+ Launches In UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria & Switzerland
At launch, seasons 1 to 30 will be available, with season 31 coming to the service later in the year. But while some of that expansion has seen some hiccups , other regions are basically on track.

To help those with kids at home (or any Minecraft fan looking for something new to explore), Microsoft has released a huge amount of educational content for free.

"We understand the important role that games are playing right now to connect people and provide joy in these times of isolation and stress, and our teams are working diligently to ensure that we can be there for our players". All content is free to download until June 30. Players can take an educational journey to the International Space Station thanks to a partnership with NASA, visit historical landmarks in Washington D.C., and learn how to code with the assistance of a robot pal. While practicing social distancing and remaining indoors, gaming has risen by 75 percent in the US alone.

"To that end, we are actively monitoring performance and usage trends to ensure we're optimizing the service for our customers worldwide and accommodating for new growth and demand", Spencer said. Lessons and activities such as "creative writing activities, build challenges, and tricky puzzles" are included in the different worlds.

Anyone with Minecraft for Bedrock platforms can find these worlds by launching Minecraft and visiting the in-game store. If you're curious about exploring these new worlds, you can get Minecraft via Android & iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows 10 PC, Gear VR, Oculus Rift, Fire TV, Xbox One, Windows MR, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
