Just a few days ago, we reported that a couple of new Apex Legends heroes might be coming to the game based on a datamine of the game’s files. Well, it seems that’s not the only thing we’re getting that’s new!
Found by fan-ran GamingIntel, the game’s files mentions a few new Apex Legends new modes! One of them is called “Recruit,” and it seems it’ll be a 20 vs. 20 match, and every enemy you revive will be recruited to be on your team; last team alive wins the game.
Another mode found in the files is called “Survival,” with other Apex Legends fan-ran Twitter account RealApexLeaks stating that we might see a host NPC (non-playable character), which there are eight to choose from. They’re not the normal Legends (read: the ones out now).
LEAK: For the #ApexLegends Survival Mode, we might be seeing a Host NPC. There were 8 options to choose from. They're not the normal Legends, I've cross checked.

Finally, ApexLBR has found what appears to be a TDM mode (team deathmatch) for Apex Legends, though it could be something from Titanfall 2 given there’s the word “Pilot” at the bottom. For those unaware, Titanfall used the term Pilots for soldiers.
