LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Force is with Electronic Arts.

The video game publisher heavily focused on forthcoming "Star Wars" games during its Monday briefing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

EA showed off an extended look at the upcoming multiplayer game "Star Wars: Battlefront." The footage showcased a battle on icy planet Hoth between Empire and Republic forces that culminated with Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader locking light sabers.

The publisher also announced an expansion for the online role-playing game "Star Wars: The Old Republic" dubbed "Knights of the Fallen Empire" and a new mobile card game called "Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes."

Other titles teased included the cartoony shooter sequel "Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2," the free-running romp "Mirror's Edge: Catalyst" and a new platformer about a creature made of yarn called "Unravel."
