Various landscapes found in new mountains
Not much has been shown about the new mountains for the update seeing as while they form half of the update name they aren't exactly the focus of the update. I just suggest that while the only image we've seen of mountains shows rugged landscapes, there should be a bit more variation in the types of mountains we see.
I believe like the old mountains there should be variation in the landscape. Instead of just a tall bit of land with rugged terrain in between to blend it in like the Minecraft live image we were shown. There should be variation such as plateaus and cliff edges. While they would be cool to look at combined with better generation they also provide some use in gameplay. Plateaus would make good building spaces for players in an otherwise high and rugged mountain landscape. While Cliff edges would provide a challenge to players when trying to scale a mountain. Instead of just walking up without a struggle that current mountains provide. Players would instead be literally opposed to a wall of rock without an apparent way past unless they mine or build a stairway upward.
I apologise if this was hard to understand but I hope I got my point across. :)
