Biome the Vote: Choose Which Minecraft Biomes Get Updates, New Features

One lucky Minecraft biome is getting a facelift, and you get to pick which one. Unfortunately, we won't know the winner until Minecon Live 2019.

Minecon Live is the celebration of all things Minecraft, and Mojang is adding to this year's event by holding a user poll to see which Minecraft biome gets a big upgrade first.

The choices are Swamp, Mountains, and Badland, and Mojang promises a variety of new features for all three biomes, including new mechanics and new models. Regardless of which biome wins, all will eventually get upgraded, since the Big Biome Vote is just to determine which one should gets the big makeover first

The poll opens on September 28 at 12 p.m. EDT, but between now and then, Mojang will release videos on Twitter showcasing what players should expect from each biome's update.

Minecon Live 2019 itself also begins September 28 and will be broadcast via Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, Facebook, and Minecraft.net.

This year's convention is hosted by four influencers and Minecraft experts, Masuo, Marielitai, Shubble, and Dangthatsalongname.

It'll include all of the usual fare: a 90-minute presentation of in-depth announcements about upcoming changes to the game and a series of panels hosted by Minecraft masters talking about what they do best, from modding to being a marketplace creator.

With Minecon Live, there is a number of Minecraft-related announcements we might expect to see. Minecraft Earth is one, or the recently announced ray tracing and graphics suite updates.

Then there's the Diablo-inspired Minecraft Dungeons, which hasn't gotten much attention since its initial announcement earlier in the year.

Whatever it is, we'll just have to wait and see. Be sure to tune in on GameSkinny to watch it all unfold. 

Meanwhile, check out some of the highlights from last year's Minecon Earth, which kicked off the Life Aquatic update, here.
