Minecraft BACKTRACKS creator on a secret fan item
MINECRAFT capes are one of the most difficult items to obtain in the game without the help of outside help.
They are usually given out in limited quantities at events, such as those attending Minecon, or as giveaways for Mojang employees.
Developer Mojang announced a new item on Cape Vanilla for players to get their hands on before quickly deleting the post.
Fans wondered if the cape was actually a myth, but we’ve got everything to know about this Minecraft mystery.
Is the vanilla cape coming to Minecraft?
On August 15, a post appeared on the official Minecraft news site stating that the Vanilla Cloak would soon be available to players.
It was advertised as a reward for those who purchased both the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft on PC.
The offer only extends to those who made it before the merger of the two editions in June this year.
However, an offer had existed for many years where owners of one edition could get the other for free.
This means that only a small number of players would be able to pick up the cape.
The post was deleted just an hour after it was posted, alongside a separate post on the official Minecraft server about Vanilla Cape.
You can find mentions of the giveaway using the Wayback Machine – a website that shows you old web pages – but any current mentions of Cap Vanille have been removed.
It has been speculated that the post was posted too soon and the cape design was not finalized.
The other theory is that Mojang simply backtracked on the idea, deciding it was a bad idea.
However, if you’re one of the few who purchased both PC editions back then, keep your eyes peeled.
A brand new cape might fly towards you.
