Project Flare is the best thing you haven't heard of from E3

Square Enix is genius. They rendered a map off of a supercomputer and placed it into a game, rather than limit itself on the consoles'/PC's rendering power. The result? A map 17 times bigger than Skyrim, a fully-explorable 32 square kilometers. That was done in six months, by three people. 

This development, according to Square, could give MMOs the capability to run every single player on the same server rather than split it up. A single outsourced map can accomplish what gaming could never do on its own.

Just when you think Square has pushed you away with an announcement like, G-Bike.  They pull you right back in.

Given, grain of salt here, it's just a tech demo. But if this IS used, it could be glorious

I really hope that it does get used.
