The game which is due for North American release from 22 September 2015 onwards, will feature the women’s national squads of Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, and the United States of America. The women’s teams will represent their respective federations in several FIFA 16 game modes including Kick Off, an offline tournament, as well as Online* Friendly Matches.
“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.”
“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 for the 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.”
FIFA 16 with Women’s National Teams** will be available when the game launches on Origin™ for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360®, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB.
