A month ago, we told you about the imminent arrival of the latest game in the long-running Alien vs. Predator crossover franchise. Today, that game, titled AVP: Evolution, has been released on iOS.

Developed by Predators developer Angry Mob Games and published by Fox Digital Entertainment, AVP: Evolution is a third-person action shooter combat game.

AVP: Evolution dares you to play as Alien and Predator in the ultimate battle for species supremacy:

On a distant planet, the blood feud between Predator clans continues to rage. In a final attempt to eradicate the Jungle Hunter Clan, the Super Predators secure the capabilities of an unlikely and unwilling species, the Aliens. As an Alien, you must ultimately destroy the Super Predators and free your species from enslavement. As a Jungle Hunter Predator, you must eliminate the Alien Queen in order to prevent the Super Predators from annihilating your clan.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, AVP: Evolution is available now in the App Store for $4.99. Note, though, that it doesn’t support the fourth-generation iPod touch.

Note, too, that it weighs a hefty 426MB. So, make sure to clear some space on your iDevice if necessary for AVP: Evolution.
