With many gamers criticizing the lack of female players in previous versions, EA Sports felt 2016 would be ideal to feature 12 national women's teams in the game, including squads from England, USA, Australia, Brazil and Spain.
The female national teams can play in three modes: Kick Off, offline tournament and online friendly games; however, won't be able to complete in FIFA Ultimate Team, as this relies on a wider range of players.
To create accurate character portrayals, EA Sports worked with the soccer players, including USA's Sydney Leroux and Abby Wambach.
This news will be important for bringing in more gamers to the franchise. David Rutter, vice president and general manager for EA Sports FIFA, said this was a "massive event" in a statement, whilst many players, like England Captain, Stephanie Houghton sung their praises for this new addition on Twitter.
If this addition to the franchise is successful, there could be potential for incorporating more national soccer teams.
