Men v women matches?

If not, hopefully someone patches it into pc.

Spekaing of pc, is UT bonked on pc now that EA's drm is cracked? Worth playing or is everyone cheating like they do on last gen?

I'm the biggest fan out there, but this seems just a move to earn some goodwill in my opinion after recent discussions and developments.

IDK, nothing AGAINST it, but it doesn't seem like the most important thing they might add to the game.
This has likely been in the works for months, the arrests have nothing to do with the video game or what happens on the field?

It says in the description that there won't be men vs. women just like in the real FIFA.

I am sure someone will get angry over that but I don't see much of an issue.

I have the weirdest boner right now. But on topic, considering football is seen as a girls' sport it makes sense to have women players.

A girls sport? What the hell?

This is great news to be fair! About time the ladies got the recognition.

Amazing. <33333333
Best thing EA did in years.
thought they would be doing a lazy job, with generical faces and shit, but this seems impressive.
A small victory for the girls side. :')

Guess that means I'll actually be able to play a good danish team next year.

Is Denmark in? Where can i see the list of the 12 teams?

Besides this great addition, everything looks kind of rough visually.
At least, I hope they add some meaningful gameplay mechanisms, and fixes the goalkeepers!

[edit]
Just saw the list. Denmark is NOT in.

I'm hoping they finally have 60fps during replays, free kicks, goal kicks and penos.....probably won't happen though :/

well this thread is off to a terrible start

anyway, glad they're finally adding women's national teams. I hope it's for everything like career and be a pro not just off to the side like a kick-off match.

No, you misunderstood, I mean in the gaming industry about women and women protagonists, the same goes with Assassin's Creed recent announcements.
Come on guys don't just jump to my throat just because a male soccer fan (90% of the existing market) does not care for Female football and might like EA to concentrate on something else rather than this. It seems like a political move to me.

Also, this fits with yesterday's rumor from a brazilian site that said FIFA 16 would include brazilian teams, women's soccer and "better defense system, slower game and changes in carreer mode"
This sounds good, hope it's true.

But they really need to do something about the goalkeepers. Give us more control. It's not like they really fixed them last year.

And they especially need to do something about the body proportions. Maybe take a look at Pro Evolution Soccer.

Is it just me or do the graphics look horrid?

The close up stuff has never looked great in fifa games. All the players have this weird dead eye thing going on which is super creepy but also pretty funny in the replays.

They completely broke keepers last year. The number of times I've shot directly at a keeper and had it go in... So utterly broken.

I watch more US women's soccer than US men's. Its not a political move. The US women's team is more famous than the men's. Alex Morgan is a household name. Hope solo was too.
Good luck getting an average american to name anyone on the men's us team, let alone the coach.

It's really frustrating. The goalkeepers do a lot of dumb things and can even cost you the game.

According to the Brazilian rumor. The Brazilian league is in again, which is great.

Oh relax, I get enough nudity at work. It was just a joke about Hope Solo on The Fappening. It's not even top 10 worse things Hope Solo has been involved in. She beats up family members and gets in DUIs.
