The WNBA will finally be included in a basketball video game as EA Sports and the league announced on Thursday morning that all 12 WNBA squads and the All-Star teams would be available to play in NBA Live 18.

"We are delighted to collaborate and make history with EA as "NBA LIVE 18" becomes the first video game to feature the WNBA's full roster of teams and players", Borders said in a statement.

Many WNBA stars sat for detailed head scans at EA Sports' Tiburon studio, where NBA Live is made and athletes in other games get scanned as well.

Available in WNBA Play Now, all teams and player skills have been balanced to "reflect the unique playstyle of the league and skills of its players".

The "NBA Live" series has been known for trying new things, as they routinely included worldwide teams playing under FIBA rules for years in their games. The developers had to pull in a number of WNBA stars for facial scanning and motion capture.

EA Sports also recently brought women's teams to its soccer franchise, including the world's top female national teams for the first time in "FIFA 16".

The game's creators fine-tuned player ratings and skill moves.

In EA's press release, NBA Live executive producer Sean O'Brien said that "the WNBA is home to some of the most incredible athletes on the planet, and we've been working hard to integrate them into our game in an authentic and meaningful way". He also added that they are looking forward to working with the WNBA on more integration into the game in the future.

The game, which is built in Maitland, is scheduled for release September 9 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
