What is This Mysterious 'Tower Pass' All About?

A data miner has uncovered what may be the first hints of a Mortal Kombat 11 Battle Pass. This "Tower Pass" could very well extend the life of the latest iteration of this brutal fighting game, although we might not be getting one at all.

As one might expect, data miners have dug into the code of Mortal Kombat 11 following its recent Aftermath update. Among the many discoveries was the removal of Ash and no other mention of DLC characters in the game's code, adding another layer of suspicion that something is being cooked up by the folks over at NetherRealm Studios.

What is the Mortal Kombat 11 Battle Pass?

MP1st reports on data mining done by thethiny, a YouTuber who does some hacking and modding of games. His particular focus at the moment is modding Mortal Kombat 11, and he may have just discovered a Mortal Kombat 11 Battle Pass buried in the code.

Here's the relevant snippet of code that thethiny reportedly uncovered:

[PlayerProfile]
PlayerProfile=KOMBAT KARD
Quests=CURRENT ACTIVITY
BattlePass=TOWER PASS
Notifications=NOTIFICATIONS
KareerStats=KAREER STATS
NextBattlePass=NEXT BATTLE PASS TIER

However, thethiny also notes that several other strange changes have been made. One example is the recent release of Aftermath which is referred to as "GOTY" in internal game code.

Considering these coding oddities, NetherRealm Studios may be working on something. We can't say for sure whether or not there's an actual Mortal Kombat 11 Battle Pass on the way, but the mentions of a "Tower Pass" in the game's code certainly piques our interest. We've reached out to Warner Bros. and will update this article when we get a response.

PC players can get into the brutal fighting game action yourself by picking up Mortal Kombat 11 on Steam or the Humble Store for $49.99 or your regional equivalent; console players can get it for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Do you think we'll be getting a Mortal Kombat 11 Battle Pass? How do you think it would work? Let us know in the comments below!
