During the livestream, viewers could vote for one of three biomes that will be updated. The biome with the highest vote will get new features, such as terrain changes and new mobs, in the next major update. The winner, Mountains, will be getting snowier snow, goats, and new mountain terrain generation. The two other biomes will also get new features, but at a later date. Mountains were voted as the first biome to be updated.
Powder snow, goats, stone with snow on top (like with grass) and improved mountain terrain generation are planned to be added. Mountains were voted as the first biome to be updated in the final poll, which later became a part of the Caves & Cliffs update.
