New Biomes in Minecraft 1.19 The Wild Update

List of All New Biomes in Minecraft 1.19 The Wild Update

The Minecraft 1.18 update is still making news because of its game-changing world generation. But that’s not enough to keep players from getting excited about Minecraft 1.19: The Wild Update. Stakes are really high for this update after the success of 1.18, and from the looks of it, we won’t be disappointed. From new mobs to cool features, there’s a lot to look forward to. But for now, let’s focus on the upcoming new biomes in Minecraft 1.19 update. Our list has some confirmed as well as a couple of speculated biomes you can expect to find in Minecraft Bedrock and Java Editions. But if you still haven’t gotten around to trying the recent update, use our best Minecraft 1.18 seeds list to make the most out of it. With that said, let’s dive right in and explore all the new biomes Minecraft 1.19 The Wild Update will have to offer.

New Biomes in Minecraft 1.19 Update (January 2022)

Our list of biomes isn’t ranked in any way. So, you can explore the different biomes as per your interest using the table below.

Deep Dark Caves

As the name suggests, this biome was originally planned for the 1.18 Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update. But due to developmental delays, we will finally see this new biome in Minecraft 1.19 update. Deep dark caves are the most dangerous type of caves in the game. They spawn only below the Y=-1 level of height.

Deep Dark Biome

Unlike other cave biomes, including the recently added lush caves and dripstone caves seeds, Deep dark caves won’t have any reliable light sources like lava. Though, you might find glowing lichen at certain locations within the cave. As for the mobs, you don’t have to worry about bumping into a creeper in the dark. The spawning of regular mobs will be reduced in the deep dark caves. However, there’s something more sinister (more on this below) that you should worry about at this depth.

Ancient Cities

Within the deep dark caves, at times, you can encounter a structure called ancient cities. The easiest way to notice this structure is through iconic skulk blocks. These are dark blue in color and have a distinguished look. Following the skulk blocs will lead you to a castle-like structure that is home to the Warden.

Warden is a highly threatening boss mob in Minecraft 1.19. It is also the first blind mob in the game. The Warden’s presence alone makes the deep dark caves one of the best new biomes in Minecraft 1.19 update.

But defeating the Warden is no child’s play. In its territory, you get affected by a darkness effect, which reduces the in-game brightness for the player. Then, Warden attacks the player based on the sound and vibrations they make. It can kill you with just two hits, even if you have a full netherite armor. So, unlike any other mob fight, you have to rely on stealth and game sense more than your combat skills.

New Swamps Biome

On the not so sinister side of things are the swamps in our list of new biomes in Minecraft. Yeah, we already have swamps in the game, but if we are being honest, no one likes them. Keeping that in mind, the developers at Minecraft are now revamping the swamp by adding mangrove trees, new overall generation, and a lot of mud. Unlike soil, mud is going to be a new multi-purpose block in the game, which you can even use to build houses.

Through this revamp, Minecraft 1.19 is also giving us a variety of frogs in the game. They also have eggs, tadpoles, and color variants that create a whole experience around them. Additionally, swamps will also feature fireflies at nighttime, making it one of the best-looking Minecraft biomes in general.

Mangrove Swamps

As a variant of the swamp biome, the upcoming Minecraft 1.19 update is also adding mangrove swamps. It will look like a combination of jungle and swamp biomes, and you can find mangrove trees, mud blocks, and swamp mobs here. Also, expect to find a lot of propagule, a hanging vegetative structure on trees in this biome.

Speculated New Biomes in Minecraft 1.19

Beyond the already confirmed biomes, there are a few rumors and speculations around other biomes too. Here’s a list of our guesses at the upcoming biomes and biome-based changes in the next update.

  • Birch forests can get a few additional features, and a structural revamp to make them more interesting.
  • Minecraft first teased a new savanna update in 2018 with ostriches, termites, and new trees. And Minecraft 1.19 might finally lead us to the realization of those teasers.
  • Jungle and swamp villages might also find a way into the game in the Minecraft 1.19 update. We already have models for villagers from both of these biomes in the game. And with the confirmation of mud huts, swamp villages, followed by jungle villages, this might become a reality soon.
  • A revamped Badlands biome was also a part of teasers in the past with tumbleweed, vultures, and flowering cactuses. And the 1.19 Wild update is a pretty nice time to implement it.
  • Finally, the Minecraft deserts are pretty interesting as they are right now. But they can be an eyesore due to their repetitive look. However, from the 2019 biome-chooser teaser, we can expect new additions like palm trees, oasis, and meercats to the desert biome.

Get Ready to Explore New Biomes in Minecraft 1.19

Between Minecraft 1.18’s beautiful mountains seeds and Minecraft 1.19’s revamped wildlife, I am definitely a bigger fan of the latter. And since the update is in the early testing stage, we are just scratching the surface. Who knows what else we might discover as the release date inches closer. Meanwhile, we also have a guide to existing Minecraft biomes if you haven’t explored all of them yet. They look even better than usual if you turn on the best Minecraft 1.18 shaders in the latest update. Though, you might have to install Optifine in Minecraft 1.18 to get started. Coming back to the Minecraft 1.19 update, there’s a lot to unpack here. So, don’t forget to tell us what more you expect from the new Wild update in the comments below. Who knows, your guessed feature might end up in the update, arriving later this year.


  1. All I think that really needs an update is the dog/wolf. The cats have had many updates, but the dogs still look exactly like wolves, please update the dog. Thank you for the amazing game Mojang. I’m excited for what comes of it.

    1. E além de fazer algumas mudanças no cão/lobo poderia tbm adicionar armaduras para o cão/lobo seria incrivel se isso acontecesse

  2. Hi, mojang? Just a suggestion, changeing the axolotls in the axolotl buckets to match the ones you picked up would be appreciated. Thanks!

  3. I hope to see the bug for where the villagers go to sleep be fixed because they end up laying in the floor or floating in mid air our of their beds.

  4. If minecraft could add an update for snowy biomes also that could be fun, if they add pine trees to minecraft it would be great for Christmas trees and penguins which are pretty cute and frozen lakes in middle of some places in the snowy biomes, i really love winter BTW so it would be cool if they did that

  5. Is the update just for players on PC or will it apply to console players to, still playing it on Wii U at the moment but suppose I could purchase on PS4 if needed to.

  6. I thank that Minecraft should make more living animals instead of mods. and other should be new villagers and villagers’ homes like there should a king in mind craft and if you kill him you become the king and lead there army.BUT comment on mine pleas to see what you thank

    1. Omg that would be so cool! I can all ready see all the youtubers/streamets going CRAZY for this lol

  7. Hi I am playing Minecraft since realese I would really like a new boss in the nether like king blaze and a new biome in the nether. I would like a ore that is more powerful than netherite it can be used to defend hits from the warden , And it can be only found in the end like the name should be endinium it colour must purple and it’s really Hard to find. I would also like a swana update more mobs would be cool

      1. Hahaha lol
        But I a have to agree that I would also like more things in the nether and like a new boss and a new ore… Thank you

  8. With all the changes ive seen in minecraft since I’ve been playing it would be good to see a new block type created, like a triangle would be interested, l can picture in my minecraft mind lots of interesting possibilities for this especially if you have choices of direction both vertically and horizontal.

  9. Maybe like when u kill a cat u get a cats eye like u get a spooder but u can Make cats eyes and u can see in the dark but it a lil crazy but meh :3

    1. Do you realize that a switch doesn’t even come close to having the specs it needs to run shaders? Even a PC with a RTX 30 series can sometimes struggle with shaders to get even 60fps.

      And Java on other devices? Huh?

  10. Hey, me and my friend have discussed and we want dinosaurs, mice, butterflies, a Verity of birds (pigeons aspecially), and insects. This would be amazing and definatley lure in more players. BRING IT ON!!

  11. Would like to see a new wood cutting table being able to make triangles and a new furnace able to bake clay
    And would like to see stronger tools

    1. this has to be a joke, right? This isn’t fortnite and the time that minecraft is set in is so that mechanical devices aren’t even invented yet? Like they didn’t even add chairs because they though it would be “too modern”….

    2. One of the greatest things about Minecraft is that it DOESN’T have guns. This is a very versatile game, appropriate for all ages, and still appeals to all ages. There are plenty of other games with guns, so let’s keep them out of Minecraft.

  12. Hi Mojang I know you probably won’t add this idea to Minecraft but may be you could : 1. New Wepons and armours. 2. New Spawn eggs. 3. And maybe you could add GUNS but in the inventory so its optional instead of of being in a mod. Thank you for your time bye.

  13. Hello majong i am old player of minecraft my name is steve respectively please add a water bar that make a game some realestic so i am like mods of water bar please you can add a water bar and some other kind of woods

  14. Perhaps the addition of wool armor, or padded leather armor, which could be crafted at the Smithing table by using leather armor and either wool, or if you want it to be a little more challenging, phantom membrane, could allow one to move more quickly in ancient cities without attracting the attention of the warden, making it a truly neutral mob.

  15. I am eagerly waiting for the deep caves and swamps update. But my favourite wood in real life is teak. So i would kindly request to add these type of trees.
