Aliens vs Predator stalks iOS and Android

Aliens: Colonial Marines got you down? Maybe a little Aliens vs Predator is what you need.
AVP: Evolution is a third-person action title on the way for iOS and Android from Fox Digital Entertainment and Angry Mob Games (Predators) that actually sounds kind of neat. Now you might be thinking that Aliens vs Predator games haven't exactly lit the gaming world on fire in the past, and you'd be right, but this one has some potential. 

For one thing, the mobile title breaks the mold right off the bat as Colonial Marines aren't a playable faction in AVP: Evolution. Strange as it may sound to anyone who knows the gaming history of the two towers of action/horror, the marines in this game look to be strictly of the enemy persuasion.

There are two campaigns to AVP:E, Predator and Alien (and by that I mean those lovable Xenomorphs). Both campaigns allow you to upgrade and grow your character's strengths and/or weaponry as the game progresses.
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.

Despite the not-so attractive main characters, Angry Mob is promising a pretty game to behold. The developer is using the Unity engine and is looking to produce a "showcase" title for iOS and Android devices with "rich detail, advanced character models and distinctive lighting".

Look for AVP: Evolution to hit iOS and Android mobiles next month.
