A leaker has revealed that a new small-scale Apex Legends game mode, codenamed "Capture," is currently in the works.

Most players play Apex Legends for its battle royale game mode, but Respawn Entertainment has been rolling out several spin-off game modes as well. Most recently, the game introduced Apex Legends Arenas, a round-based 3v3 mode designed for a much smaller map. The mode was a great success, and left players wishing for more.

Reputable Apex Legends leaker Shrugtal revealed to the community that after the 9.1 update, Respawn implemented code in the game for a new game mode called "Capture." The mode is designed for a section of the Olympus map, and is meant to be a team-based game mode similar to Call of Duty's Domination.

Like in Domination, the main goal of players in Capture is to seize objective sites around the map. The leaker mentioned there are special "Parking Pads" in the mode, where players can spawn Tridents and unlock quick travel between the capture points. He also mentioned the Capture map is larger than the Arenas maps, indicating more players than a 3v3 mode - perhaps even a 6v6 mode like in Call of Duty.

Respawn has not confirmed officially whether the leak is accurate, or when Capture will be arriving. Players should always take leaks with a grain of salt, because game modes can be heavily adjusted or abandoned before release. Nevertheless, the Capture leak is a good sign that Respawn is looking to expand on alternative game modes.
