Minecraft: Java and Bedrock Edition for PC Vanilla Cape FAQ 

This article includes information regarding a vanilla cape that certain players earn for having owned both Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft Bedrock Edition before the launch of Minecraft: Java and Bedrock Edition for PC. 

In This Article:

What is the vanilla cape? 

The vanilla cape is a unique cape offered to users who owned (whether by purchase or by code redemption) Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on PC on the same Microsoft account before June 6, 2022! 


Can I become eligible for the vanilla cape after June 6, 2022? 

If you did not purchase both versions of Minecraft on the same Microsoft account on PC before June 6, 2022, it is not possible to become eligible for this vanilla cape. 

How do I acquire the vanilla cape? 

We began rolling out the vanilla cape to eligible players on Wednesday, August 31st. However, these rollouts will continue into the coming months. Once it arrives, the cape should show up in your Dressing Room and Skin Customization menus automatically in both versions of the game. If you don’t see your cape, try refreshing the game by logging completely out and back in.  

Note: The vanilla cape may not appear in both versions of Minecraft at the same time. If the cape appears in one game and not the other, give it some time, and it should eventually appear in your other version.

I already owned both Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, but on different Microsoft Accounts. Can I still get the cape provided to users who owned both games? 

Unfortunately, both games must have been owned on a single Microsoft account prior to June 6, 2022, to receive the cape. Minecraft Support cannot 'merge' two accounts to force eligibility, and account migrations that have taken place after June 6, 2022, will not be eligible for the cape.
