Just in time for the 2015 Women’s World Cup, which kicks off a little over a week from now, EA Sports announced that its video game FIFA 16 will include Women’s National Teams. Unfortunately, the game won’t include a multitude of corrupt FIFA employees, including a former executive who paid $6,000 a month for a cat apartment, but perhaps EA Sports is saving that for next year’s game.
Per an EA Sports press release early Thursday morning, the new FIFA 16 will have 12 Women’s National teams, including eight of the current top 10 nations in the FIFA Women’s World Rankings.
“Today, we are proud to announce the inclusion of Women’s National Teams to FIFA 16. As one of the most requested features in recent years, this is a huge milestone for both our franchise and the sport.”
The release also mentioned that EA Sports worked with each team to capture head scans to gather facial features and hair styles of all the players included in the game. Apparently this took some extra effort on EA Sports’ part, as the release stated that the company’s mobile headscanning unit was taken to events and tournaments around the world to get the vitals they needed from players.
EA Sports will hold a press conference June 15 to release more information regarding FIFA 16. The game is set to be released some time in September.
