E3 is typically a time for the unexpected, and Bethesda delivered in that regard. First we got Quake Champions and then we get something perhaps no one expected to ever appear again: Prey.

BioWare Teases Us With a New Look at Mass Effect: Andromeda

If you're an RPG fan, EA's E3 conference could have brought something either Mass Effect or Dragon Age-related at long last. Well, Dragon Age is still missing, but we did get something on Mass Effect: Andromeda.
