One of my favorite parts of the game was the early statement that there was only one member of each monster type (One Goliath, One Kraken, ect) and that was controlled by the player. The egg mode was released and I was upset, but the devs stated it was non-canon.
However, the new video for evacuation came out and displayed multiple monsters again, this time stated to be canon. So during the Reddit AMA I asked Turtle Rock what happened to the idea and they stated that it is still there in a sense: The player always controls a unique ‘Alpha’ monster, as opposed to a standard soldier monster. But this left me with many questions still.
Is the naming just a title? Is there an actual difference between Alphas and normal monsters? Are Alphas visually different, more powerful, or is it more like a title like General or Commander?
