Introducing, for the first time ever, women!

Fresh of the dramatic win by the United States in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup comes the release of the first FIFA soccer game to include the women’s national teams from around the world. You can choose from twelve national teams. FIFA 16 will feature all of the fun of previous installments in the series, but will include more enhanced controls on offence and defense. Players will benefit from the FIFA trainer system which will help them master the new play mechanics.

This game is awesome, and with the addition of the playability of women’s national teams the game becomes historic. All I want to know is if I can can play a women’s team vs. a men’s team and do the old fashioned battle of the sexes.

Man, Alex Morgan has some ups!
