Minecraft Live is coming on October 3, 2020, and will give us a sneak peek into the future of Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons, and everything we should expect as far as future content and updates are concerned. Ahead of the event, Mojang Studios has announced that they’ll be running a poll during Minecraft Live to allow the fans to vote on the next mob to be added to Minecraft, which they’ve done in the past. This mob vote will have three different options, with all three options having already been revealed.

The three mobs available to vote during Minecraft Live will be:

  • Iceologer. This hostile mob would perch itself on top of mountain tops, not unlike those that may be altered with a Mountain Update. The Iceologer would make mountains a more challenging and formidable place, by targeting players and lobbing ice shards at them.
  • Moobloom. This passive mob has already made an appearance in Minecraft Earth, and would be a variant of the Mooshroom that we already know and love, except with flowers instead of fungi, and a fascination with bees instead of secluded islands in the middle of the ocean.
  • Glow Squid. Another option that originally appeared in Minecraft Earth, the Glow Squid is very similar to the normal squid that’s already present in Minecraft, but, you guessed it, glows. This squid would be passive, and wouldn’t harm players, and generally prefers to stay away from other life. For this reason, and to make its glow more impressive, it stays in deeper, darker waters.

Mojang Studios says each mob will get their own teaser video, released over the next week ahead of Minecraft Live, to share more with players about the mobs in question. Personally, I’m rooting for the Iceologer to win the vote (especially since a mountain-themed update seems most likely in the future).
