If you've played enough of Mortal Kombat 11's perpetually updating modes you may've noticed a meteor streaking across the Towers of Time menu. The astral phenomenon has been a subject of speculation for quite some time -- and finally its secrets have been unlocked! Read on for more:

Efforts to solve the mystery of the rarely seen meteor were redoubled when NetherRealm designer Aaron Davis confirmed there was still an undiscovered secret in the game. Based on description this isn't his mid-match mystery, but it will allow you to summon a Hidden Event tower to unlock random Kombat League skins and other rewards!

The discovery was made by prolific data-miner thethiny, who shared his method in a YouTube tutorial [embedded below]. According to his discovery: the meteor will appear every 2 hours at 10 minutes past the hour, subject to time zone.

When it does: you simply input left, up, left, right, left, up, up to unlock the hidden tower.

Eagle-eyed fans corrected thethiny's secret code input, noting that the directional inputs mirror one of Mortal Kombat's most famous codes: the Sega Genesis Blood Mode unlock of ABACABB.
