Last week Mojang announced to the world that it’ll be holding a vote to decide which of the 3 Minecraft biomes will get major new updates. The vote, that takes place on September 28th to coincide with MineCon Live, pits the Swamp, Mountains and Badlands biomes against each other. As of nowadays, we know very little regarding what the Badlands update actually intends to bring.
In a short video uploaded to Instagram, the studio summed it up:
If you don’t want to watch the video, the Badlands update is expected to bring tumbleweed, a “fancy new cactus” and vultures, which are attracted to loot “left behind by unlucky explorers”.
Of course, these details released are very basic and the video is very short. I am unsure if the final update can boast additional stuff than is listed here, however, all we can do is watch the other videos posted by Mojang and guess. These videos give you something to do until September 28th, that is that the day pick will occur via livestream.
