During the livestream, viewers could vote for one of three biome that could be updated. The biome with the highest vote would get new features, such as terrain changes and new mobs, in the next major update.[7] The two other biomes will also get new features, but in a later date.[8] The other biomes will be added in future updates.

During the live stream, the taiga biome won the vote and was a part of the Village & Pillage update.

Desert[edit]
