The first significant trailer for the upcoming instalment of FIFA has just dropped on Youtube, and it’s not what we were expecting!
For the first time in history, FIFA 16 will feature the women’s national teams and the stars of women’s football including Abby Wambach, Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Sydney Le Roux, who have all undergone full motion capture treatment.
Speaking about the move, England Women Captain, Steph Houghton said:
The whole team are thrilled to be included in FIFA 16. It’s a really exciting year for women’s football with the forthcoming World Cup and to find out we will be included in FIFA for the first time is a special feeling.Advertisement
To be one of the first female players included in the game is something we’ll always be able to look back on and be proud of. Hopefully it will help raise the profile of the women’s game even further.
Quite a few of us in the team play FIFA so I’m sure there will be a bit of banter about our ratings and a few extra competitive games while we’re away in Canada…. I’m looking forward to scoring as myself for the first time!
It’s an historic move for FIFA, and you’ll be able to experience it this fall!
