Tundras were a cold biome, which existed in the game prior to the Adventure Update.

Description[edit]

Snowy, barren terrain with very few trees. The occasional trees do exist, though very rarely. Ice can be found over water. Snow is a common weather in tundras. It generates when the temperature is below 50% and the rainfall is less than 20%.

In Beta 1.8, Notch also said that this biome would be left out until Beta 1.9. This is because snow was causing problems with the new biome generator.[citation needed]
