A large frigid landscape with snowstorms and avalanches. The third hardest biome in the Genesis Simulation to survive in. Home to the elusive Ferox and the endless snowstorms in the east. If one were to choose to live here, they should look for a cliffside to build above, and most importantly build a fence around their structure or hut and tames.

- X-Woolly Rhino
From Local Creatures
Despite the freezing temperature, this biome can be an easier start than the bog, as the difficult creatures in the artic are generally more visible and easier to avoid, and don't stun/dismount the player.
Water can be a challenge in this game early on. The only open sources of water are in non-buildable areas. Water can be collected during snow storms as though it were raining, filling the player's water but also reservoirs and canteens.
The x-otters around the Ice Fishing mission can be tamed easily by starting the mission and just not doing the mission but instead killing the fish that are spawned in and taming the otters. Most the creatures here are non-aggressive, so getting here early on can make the biome much more survivable since otters insulate the player when worn as a shoulder pet.
- As said in one of the glitches, the arctic biome is meant to simulate high altitudes.
- Jack London's famous short story "To Build a Fire" is mentioned in a glitch.
- In Genesis: Part 2, the origin of Arctic biome came from Yongki's simulation of real life biomes for the Colony Ship. He already had the biome approved by Santiago but he coded in what will be the endless blizzard in the eastern side of the biome when both of them returned for a secret conversation.
- During the conversation, Yongki needed a secret place to talk and asked Santiago if Uma got to him as well as asking his friend to confront their Homo deus friend about the archive dilemma.
