Upcoming Minecraft - Pocket Edition Update Packs a Slew of New Features
The developer team behind the iOS version of Minecraft has recently submitted an update, version 0.4.0, of the popular app. The dev team seems to be adding some really important elements to the game with Chests being one of them. Chests can be built with materials found in the world and allow players to store more and more of what they find and collect out there. In addition to Chests, Beds are also being added in to the game. Beds help players easily survive the gameís dangerous night.
The gameís most iconic enemy, the Creeper, is also headed to the mobile version of the game in the upcoming update. For those of you who donít know what the Creeper does, itís a zombie that sneaks up on playerís from behind, then explodes when close. Upon exploding, the monster not only hurts the players but also destroys nearby structures.
The changelog for the update can be found below:
Chests to store items
Beds to skip night and setting your spawn point
TNT, and flint and steel to ignite
