Interplay has unveiled its lineup for the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo later this month. The company will show a number of console games, and the publisher's role-playing game division, Black Isle Studios, will be showing two games. The first game on display will be Icewind Dale II, the sequel to Black Isle's 2000 hack-and-slash role-playing game. Icewind Dale II will feature the 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, and, like the original game, it will draw some inspiration from R.A. Salvatore's Icewind Dale Trilogy novels. The second game will be an unnamed role-playing game that the developer will reveal at the show.

Icewind Dale II is currently scheduled for release at the end of the month--just a few days after the end of E3. We'll have more information on both Icewind Dale II and Black Isle's unnamed role-playing game soon.
