Biomes in Atlas

There are 7 kinds of Biomes in Atlas, further divided into by their Geographical location (eg North-Eastern). The Biomes in Atlas are Polar, Tundra, Temperate, Tropics, Desert , Equatorial and Ocean.

Biomes in MMO Game Atlas are the various natural areas found through exploration. Each Biome has its own aesthetic and naturally spawning Creatures as well as interesting adventures for your crew.


What is a Biome in the Atlas MMO?

Much like in real life, Biomes comprise a complex habitat for both flora and fauna of a region, but are defined by abiotic elements within them such as the temperature, soil, minerals. It is in this regard that biomes should not be confused with Ecosystems, that are instead the living creatures within a biome.


What are the Biomes in Atlas MMO?

The various Biomes - Polar, Tundra, Temperate, Tropics, Desert and  Equatorial - are arranged around a loose concept of two poles and an equator, much like Earth, and you will find cold, polar-style Biomes towards the north and south of the Map, and tropical, sunny Biomes towards the middle of the Map.

Biomes are descriptions of the types of climate, resources and creatures you might come across in an area, and each Biome is seen in different areas across the map, known as sub-biomes. For example, the Temperate Biome covers four sub-biomes: the North-Eastern and North-Western Temperate, and the South-Eastern and South-Western Temperate. Each sub-biome is split into gridsquares which represent the servers which run each of them, and can be seen on the spawn map as you spawn into the game, such as A1 or H13. These are known as Regions: there are ten individual regions in each sub-biome, except the Polar and Equatorial sub-biomes which each cover 5.
