Antarctica, as its name would imply, is meant to represent the continent of Antarctica. Upon selection, the map size will default to "Giant" size, though like any other map, the size is fully customizable. Staying true to the real-world Antarctica, the map is one giant frozen island surrounded by icy water, where fish are more than plentiful.
Unlike the real Antarctica, trees appear in large groups, and do not act as walls or large obstacles that would be common in maps of a grassier, warmer climate. Because of this, the map is very open and easy to get around, thus making enemy attacks greatly unimpeded. This also makes getting to gold, stone and Relics easy as well, which are quite common.
Because of the climate, Berry Bushes do not appear. Instead, there are large groups of Ibexes available for hunting, as well as the standard Sheep for herding. Aside from the animals near the Town Centers, no more animals can be found, putting an emphasis on Farms (despite the frozen climate) and fishing closer to the start of the game.
