Maybe it's heavily tessellated?

"With DX11 hardware becoming more readily available, we decided now would be a good time to highlight the advanced features of our engine, including DX11 and tessellation support", said Tobias Persson, Lead Engineer at BitSquid. "Tessellation adds an awful lot to the visual fidelity of the scene and is something that consumers can readily see for themselves. We are looking forward to seeing how games will take advantage of our engine."

What makes this look so fun is you may get to play a giant stone creature that can destroy crap. How I miss the old days of the console Jurassic Park game where you got to play a dinosaur, starting out as a little compsognathus or "compies" as they were referred to in the movie, to a Velociraptors, to a T-Rex. I love games where you get to be big. I hope this is what this game is... some destructive powers of being gigantic... Mech Warrior was fun back in the day to destroying cities, and if you want to go back even one step further, Rampage, loved that game...
