Square Enix Shows Off Its Huge Virtual World Project

Square Enix has a vision of what may be coming for the gaming industry in the not-so-distant future. Project Flare makes use of supercomputers as servers to display the geographical scale of the technology, which is purported to be 17 times that of Skyrim.

But what's truly impressive is not just the size; it's that none of the world was being instanced or streamed in by the computer. It was all fully rendered in full detail across the entirety of the giant world. That includes over 600,000 trees, hundreds of packs of creatures, hills, mountains and more.
