Minecraft: Pocket Edition now creepier thanks to the new update with Creepers and more, now live

We were hearing rumblings yesterday on Twitter that the update we talked about a few weeks ago for Minecraft: Pocket Edition would be arriving today and sure enough the 0.4.0 update has arrived. For those of you who missed our last article with the full changelog, this update brings a lot more to the game including the infamous Creeper.

Along with your world being filled with Creepers now, the update also brings with it Chests, Beds, TNT, Trap Doors, Flint ans Steel and a whole lot more. In fact here is the entire changelog once again along with a nice little trailer Mojang made regarding the update:
