The Minecraft 1.18 update was released on November 30, and so many players have already had the chance to experience it. The game is a lot different and one thing that often comes with updates are new biomes.

The game has an expansive list of biomes, so much so that players may not have even seen a few of them yet. After adding a few in the 1.18 update, here's how many are in the game right now.

All biomes in Minecraft following 1.18 Caves & Cliffs update

There are a total of 51 biomes and sub-biomes in Minecraft following the 1.18 update. The Mesa biome, which is commonly referred to as the Badlands, has two sub-biomes:

  • Wooded Badlands
  • Eroded Badlands

Two more common biomes include the Desert and Savanna biomes. The desert does not currently have any sub-biomes, but the Savanna has the Windfallen Savanna and the Savanna plateau.

The Jungle biome is a fairly common Minecraft biome and also has two sub-biomes:

Mushroom Fields is one of the rarest biomes in the game, and it has no sub-biomes. The plains is arguably the most common biome and it currently has two sub-biomes in the Beach and the Sunflower Plains.
