Crowfall announced a similar concept during their Kickstarter in March. In their campaign video they provide a quite fun explanation why they want to reset/wipe worlds: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crowfall/crowfall-throne-war-pc-mmo/description

Das Tal May 31 Alpha PvP Video

I’m afraid that gameplay footage does not do this game justice. To the casual observer the gameplay is skittish and extremely fast-paced and, in a word, overwhelming. There is so much happening in every frame that there’s no way to understand what’s going on and the video gets tuned out and is unappreciated for the sheer amount of heart-pounding action that the game entails. At least, that’s how I felt when I watched DT vids. Some crucial aspects of the game that gets lost in the video are the amount of battlefield awareness that is required at every moment and the critical precision of aiming.

A couple helpful tips when watching: try to follow my cursor (you’ll be able to see where my focus lies and what I’m doing to help the fight) and the big white circle that follows me is an AoE heal (I think technically it’s an AoE HoT.. or a HOT AOE)

I'm excited for this new game on the horizon: full loot PvP (you keep what you kill), skill-based combat (aiming is critical, friendly fire is off, no "Tab-Targetting"), and changing worlds (At some point the game is "Over," the world resets and different rulesets can be employed).
