Minecraft's almost endless world offers a wealth of unique biomes that players can explore. In a regular world, players can discover over 60 different biomes. Each update brings new biomes to the game, giving players more places to explore.
Biomes are defined areas that have distinct geographic features like unique blocks, mobs and trees, natural terrain, temperature, etc. Some biomes are better suited for living than others. Others are best for exploration.
Minecraft players will find many structures, mobs and stunning terrain generation while exploring the world. If you get bored with plains, there are other biomes that you can explore. Let's take a look at five biomes that Minecraft can explore.
At the surface, the oceans are one of the most tranquil places in Minecraft. Players can find many interesting things underwater, including exotic creatures such as dolphins and sea turtles, and valuable structures like shipwrecks or ocean monuments.
Each ocean biome is unique and will appeal to all Minecrafters. You can find corals and icebergs within warm oceans.
One of the most rare biomes in Minecraft is the eroded badlands. This biome is truly amazing. The canyons of real-life are the inspiration for eroded badlands, according to their terrain generation.
Tall towers rise from the ground in eroded badlands. Eroded badlands, like other badland biomes are also made from colorful terracotta bricks. It is rare, however, so not many players will find eroded goodlands in their worlds.
Mountaineers are one of the most extreme areas in Minecraft. Caves & Cliffs will bring mountain biomes to a new level, making them more real. Mojang will add many mountain biomes to Minecraft.
New mountains can reach heights of up to 260 blocks. To test the new mountain generation, players can download trial versions.
Shattered savannas, like the eroded badlands are another example of Minecraft's extreme world generation. High-altitude mountains will suddenly appear from the ground. It's possible for players to mistakenly believe that a shattered Savanna is a glitch when they first see it.
Shattered Savannas are the closest thing the Amplified worlds have to natural generation. This biome will be more chaotic with the 1.18 update.
Cave biomes are a key feature of Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update. Players will now find lush caves and underground dripstone caves after the 1.18 update.
Mojang has also added noise caves to enhance cave generation. Developers have begun releasing pre-releases that include all 1.18 features. Soon, players will be able to experience the highly-anticipated Caves and Cliffs Part 2!
