EA’s FIFA 16 is to feature female national teams for the first time in the franchises history.
Twenty two years after the franchise first rolled out FIFA is to add female squads from England, USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain and Sweden will all be represented.
While these additional teams are added, EA confirmed that you won’t be able to put female national teams up against male teams.
EA Sports boss David Rutter said
Bringing some of the best women’s players and teams in the world to our franchise is a massive event for EA Sports, and we are equally excited about bringing millions of fans a new way to play. We’re making sure fans get an authentic experience when playing with Women’s National Teams thanks to our innovative player capture and reference tools, as well as the sophisticated gameplay platform which we will continue to innovate on in FIFA 16.
This week however, FIFA has seen some top executives arrested for alleged fraud and corruption which may change the future of FIFA as an organisation, especially if Blatter is re-elected to lead FIFA for another four years in tomorrow election process.
