Fifa 16: Women's football will be a playable mode for the first time ever

Fifa 16 will feature women’s national teams, the first time for a major football game and the first new feature to be announced for the game — but they won’t be able to play against men.

The gender restriction presumably means that women will be ranked on a separate system from the existing one for men.

The game will feature 12 different women’s national teams: Germany, USA, France, Sweden, England, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, China, Italy and Mexico. There will be no women’s club teams.

The women’s teams will be able to play in Match Day, an Offline Tournament and Online Friendly Matches, EA Sports has said. That means that they won’t be playable in any league modes, or in Ultimate Team, Fifa’s headline mode.

The addition of women's teams was revealed in a trailer released this morning, and is the first new feature to be announced for the game.

The trailer was released right in the middle of the ongoing corruption scandal at the real Fifa.
