Microsoft is planning a big overhaul of its 500-acre campus in Redmond, Washington. Expected to be completed in 2022, the new campus will have 18 additional buildings, on top of the already over 100 buildings, as well as cricket and soccer fields and retail shops.

Work on the new campus is expected to start this fall but you can already explore the campus via Minecraft as the software giant commissioned Blockworks to create a Minecraft version of its new HQ.
CNBC reports that Blockworks, a company that specializes in building Minecraft versions of real-world projects, created the version for Microsoft’s annual hackathon in July. Blockworks has also created virtual Minecraft versions of Disney, Museum of London, and Warner Bros. buildings. Anyone with the Minecraft: Education Edition can now explore Microsoft’s new campus, and the company plans to update it over time.
