I did this before in wordpress 3.4 but that code seems not working. I add this code inside wp-content/themes/ folder and I add new page from backend and try to select that. But it is not showing up, it's because new version..or am I doing it wrong?

Template Name: Cover_Page

<?php get_header(); ?>
Here's my cover page!
<?php get_footer(); ?>

Hm, first of all your page template has to be inside your current theme folder: /wp-content/themes/current-theme/ or in a similar folder. Check the Codex (Page Templates #File Folders) to make sure your template is in the right folder.

While looking at the Codex also check the Selecting a Page Template section above if you did everything the right way. Your page templates are only visible for pages, so you'll not find them in the post section or somewhere else.
