Mojang has released the third and final video showing forthcoming changes to Minecraft's biomes. The question of which of these updates will roll out first, will be subject to a vote to take place on September 28 during MineCon Live. We've seen Swamp and Badlands, now it's time to check out Mountains.

Here's the video:

The video is somewhat vaguer than the previous ones, though we're told that snow will be "snowier", which I'm taking to mean slipperier. The voiceover describes "jagged cliffs, snow-capped peaks and dramatic views", which aren't particularly uncommon in Minecraft, though it seems they'll become more common (and more grandiose) in this particular biome.

Oh, and there will be goats. It's about time, really, that Minecraft got goats. The vote will take place during MineCon Live during a September 28 livestream, which you can read more about here.
