A new trailer for FIFA 16 has revealed women’s national teams will be playable for the first time in the series.

The 12 teams that have been added are; Germany, USA, France, Sweden, England, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, China, Italy and Mexico. The women’s teams will only be able to play against other women’s teams, but will be playable in Match Day, an Offline Tournament, and Online Friendly Matches.

The EA Sports page pushing the change boasts that “players from the women’s international game have been head scanned and recreated for FIFA 16” and “With all-new in-game animations, 3D player modelling, and life-like head scans – Women’s National Teams are authentically represented in the game. From running motion, to facial animations and hair movement – players will look and move just like they do during real competition”

The page also features an interview with player Alex Morgan about what it means to be in the game. She says:

“It is such an honor for women’s players and our team to be included in FIFA 16.

“I always wondered what it would be like to see our team in the game and it is very cool to know that it is now a reality.”

FIFA 16 launches on September the 24th, but more details are due on June the 15th at E3.
