FIFA 16 Trailer: Women’s National Teams Added to the Game
For the first time in franchise history, FIFA 16 will feature Women's National Teams. On top of that, EA revealed a new trailer and the game's release date.
EA Sports has announced that FIFA 16 will feature 12 Women's National Teams, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Sweden and the United States. You'll be able to play the Women's National Teams in the Kick Off game mode (an offline tournament) and in online matches. To keep things authentic, there will be no cross-gender matches. EA Canada worked with Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach and Sydney Leroux from the US team for the motion capture work done to bring the in-game models to life.
"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," said David Rutter, VP and GM, EA SPORTS FIFA. "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."
FIFA 16 will launch on Sept. 22 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
"I honestly can't believe all of the science and technology behind the game itself, let alone getting us into the motion capture suits and eventually into the game," said Abby Wambach, world record holder for International goals scored and forward, United States Women's National Team. "We're all excited to see ourselves in the game, but even more excited to see the reaction from all of the fans, including the fans of our team that maybe wouldn't be expecting something like this from EA SPORTS."
