Earth Day Xbox

Celebrating Earth Day with Xbox

In order to celebrate Earth Day 2022 and do our part for the planet, Microsoft is offering a bunch of Earth Day goodies that appeal to gamers.

To learn more about what exactly Earth Day is, why don’t you waddle on over to the Age of Empires blog!

After you’re done learning about Earth Day, head over to your messages in Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Horizon 5 to receive the special, environmentally-friendly 2015 BMW i8 electric vehicle with an exclusive Earth Day 2022 wrap!

Still, looking for more learning and even some swag? Well, Mojang and Microsoft have you covered with new education programs in Minecraft: Education Edition. There’s also a new swag lineup made with recycled materials. And finally, a new monthly build challenge focused on the message of Earth Day and doing your part.

If you are looking for some humour to take your mind off the darker sides of Earth Day, 343 and Microsoft have got a warthog waiting for you in Halo: The Master Chief CollectionI didn’t capitalize the vehicle name because this is no vehicle… nope, instead, it’s the “Hog Wild” nameplate, which is available until April 27th!

Grounded celebrated Earth Day a little early by opening up submissions for a #FrankenArtContest. Players from the community have scrawled lovely, environmentally-friendly images into the deranged Etch A Sketch for a chance to have it appear on an official tee. Voting will happen live at PAX at the Main Theater and on Twitch! Tune in on April 23 at 1 p.m. ET. The winning shirt will be available in the Grounded storefront, and proceeds will go directly to the Captain Planet Foundation.
