Battlefield 1, in all its pro patria mori glory, takes players back to The Great War for the first time in the series' history. That means plenty of new - or technically old - weapons, vehicles, and multiplayer maps to wrap your head around.
As you start playing Battlefield 1's multiplayer, you'll encounter a variety of consumables and currencies - Battlepacks, Scrap and Puzzle pieces - that allow you to customise the way the game's many weapons look.
The way Battlefield 1 unlocks work is surprisingly simple - as you play each class type and unlock new ranks, the more weapons there will be available to you.
The Battlefield 1 Kolibri has to be seen to be believed - the 2mm caliber weapon is almost certainly the smallest weapon to feature in a shooter, and despite its tiny size, can be used in any of the game's maps and modes.
New to the series are Battlefield 1 Codex Entries, serving as in-game achievements tracking activities across both the campaign and multiplayer, and unlock logs that provide additional insight into the events of the First World War.
A new era for EA's shooter franchise means a whole host of new weaponry to discover. The many Battlefield 1 Weapons have a distinctive World War 1 flavour, and while you won't see SMGs and Rocket Launchers here, you'll get to use an array of melee weapons - from Bayonets to Trench Knives, and even a Shovel - alongside revolvers and rifles.
The Battlefield 1 Medic class, once part of a combined class in previous Battlefield games, is now a specialist in supporting your squad through healing.
Previously combined with the Assault class, the Medic now gains exclusive access to the rifle class of weaponry - arguably the most powerful in our early experience of Battlefield 1 - and is just as much of a threat offensively as it is providing support for your team. It's probably the most popular class in the game, and certainly one of the most important when it comes to sustaining both defenses and pushes for the objective, so here's our complete guide to the Medic class.
As you've probably guessed, we'll be looking at the Medic class in depth here, but once you're done be sure to also check out our guides for the Assault class, Support class, Scout class and specialist Pilot, Tanker and Cavalry classes, too.
The heavy-hitter of the series, the Battlefield 1 Support class sees few changes this year, instead staying true to what you can expect of LMG-bearing bruisers.
Battlefield 1's Elite classes are a completely new addition to the series this year, with the Flame Trooper, Sentry and Tank Hunter pickups mimicing closely what we saw with Jedi and hero units in DICE's other shooter, Star Wars Battlefront.
A critical part of every Battlefield game is its map design, and the Battlefield 1 maps certainly don't let the latest instalment down.
The Battlefield 1 Scout class - which will almost always be referred to as the sniper - is your go-to long range option for those big, open maps. In fact, Battlefield as a series has gained something of a reputation for its sniper-friendly multiplayer, and if anything that's heightened in Battlefield 1.
With the introduction of the Battlefield 1 Pilot, Tanker and Cavalry classes, this marks the first entry to the series with unique, vehicle-specific classes that can't be accessed through any other means but spawning within them.
The Battlefield 1 Assault class represents the first of many shakeups in the game's class system, marking a branch-off from previous Battlefield classes into a now-unique, Shotgun and SMG-focused class, with some Anti-Tank functionality thrown in too.
