LFifa is one of the most popular games in the video game community. Soon Electronic Arts (EA) will be releasing Fifa 16, the next Fifa game. The question is, will it live up to its expectations?

Fifa 16 is supposedly going to be released on 25th September. The one change that everyone is talking about is that in the new game they will include female football teams for the first time.

“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 of 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 game play platform which we will continue to innovate on in FIFA 16.”

There are mixed opinions about adding female players but hopefully they will be a good addition to the game. They are adding 12 all-female international teams to the game.

The developers of Fifa 16 have announced that their aim is to make the game more realistic and make the controls feel a lot smoother.

Fifa 16 will still be available on Playstation, Xbox and PC systems so all gamers will be able to enjoy the game.

    FIFA have not had the smoothest year so far but this is a great idea. I’m sure there will be many fans of the game choosing their favourite female players for their squad. Good article Freddie.
