Carson Pickett was detailed in the new game EA Sports FC 24 with only one arm.
Redwood City (California/USA) – Fans of the classic game “FIFA”, which is now called “EA Sport FC”, were surprised when they could suddenly control a woman with their controller who only has one arm. Of course, this is not a graphics bug..
Carson Pickett (30), who has been under contract with North Carolina Courage (USA) since 2021, was already born without a hand and without a left forearm.
Since “EA Sports” wants to represent the players in detail, this impairment, which is probably of little importance in soccer, was taken into account.
The athlete repeatedly stressed that she wants to be perceived as a professional footballer and not as a one-armed athlete.
The 30-year-old shared the announcement on X (formerly Twitter)that she will be the first player in the series to be featured with the special feature, writing, “So excited.”
EA Sports expands female share
The fact that women’s teams are included in soccer simulation is nothing new. Back in 2016, the US computer game developer “Electronic Arts” (EA) surprised with twelve women’s national teams in the game.
“FIFA 23” had complete women’s leagues in its program for the first time last year with the French “Division 1” and the English “Women’s Super League” (WSL).
According to ingame, the US-based company is now taking the next step with the new game in the popular series.
Women’s leagues from Spain (Liga F) and the USA (NWSL) will now be playable – the latter with Carson Pickett.
EA Sports FC 24″ will be officially available on September 29. However, subscribers of “EA Play” or “EA Play Pro” already had the chance to test the game in advance.
Same way, those who ordered the Ultimate Edition of “EA Sports FC 24” will have earlier access, reported Meinmmo.
