Respawn and EA are currently on top of the world thanks to the just-launched Apex Legends, the free to play battle royale game that seems to be making waves everywhere. However, getting off to a good launch is one thing—the more important thing is maintaining that momentum, and one reason fellow F2P battle royale title Fortnite has been able to do so is because of a number of great updates Epic Games has implemented over the months since the game launched.
It seems like Apex Legends itself may have some such updates planned, too. Posting on Twitter, the account Real Apex Leaks has revealed the existence of two new Legends, Octane and Watson. The former character has a slim injection of some sort, while the latter character seems to have an ability called Tesla Trap—but it’s unclear about what exactly these heroes will be like. Both were discovered as code among the game files, of course.
It also seems like a Survival Mode of some sort may be incoming to the game, too. It seems like the Survival Mode will have kill replays, and NPC hosts, which are separate from the playable Legend characters.

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.— Apex Legends – News & Leaks (@RealApexLeaks) February 14, 2019
I'm not exactly sure what the hosts do, but I think it's gonna be cool.#ApexLegendsBattleRoyale pic.twitter.com/O4jVcBO2RS
LEAK: In #ApexLegends Survival Mode, we should be seeing Kill Replays. Something similar to goal replays in @RocketLeague.— Apex Legends – News & Leaks (@RealApexLeaks) February 14, 2019
More Leaks Soon. Tune in for the next hour at the least.#ApexLegendsBattleRoyale pic.twitter.com/s57kV2X7By
