As some of us may know the original name for the game we all love was Metamorphosis. Perhaps this name change was made so that no one would be confused what the game has anything to do with Franz Kafka’s novella, but that remains to be known. What is know is that the game is now called Evolve, but are these monsters Evolving? No, they’re going through a metamorphosis, which brings me to my theory. What if they already evolved?
As we know the monsters attacking Shear are alien in nature and do no belong there, but what if they did belong there? What if they’re simply visitors from the future? Shear’s far future where the wildlife has evolved due to the humans being wiped out (possibly by the monsters that were sent back to the past creating a stable time loop that might be broken if the hunters succeed).
Assuming this is the case I believe that Goliaths are the evolution of Reavers, Krakens of Mammoth Birds or perhaps cephladons, Wraith of a Canyon Strider, and Behemoth of a Mega Mouth. I think this based on their body type and mouths (surprisingly the mouth of these pairs are very similar).
Feel free to share your own opinions or tell me why I’m full of shit, I’d love to hear it all.
