Spoiler-lite version regarding World Tier 1 is that it's the "proper endgame" as some would describe it. There are technically five World Tiers, although most of the stuff you get with World Tier 5 hasn't been released yet. World Tier 1 gives you a fourth stronghold to deal with, and World Tier 5 gives a fifth.
To unlock World Tier 1, you have to complete all the missions, be level 30, and do all three strongholds. Once the third stronghold is complete, you'll get a two minute countdown timer, and boom, you're in World Tier 1, and will get a cutscene regarding such. Don't skip it, it has valuable info in it, although it's technically more fluff than anything. Make sure you've looted whatever's lying around by the point, because otherwise you'll never see it.
I'd call it New Game+, as it kind of mimics such. Enemies get a LOT tougher. As for medics? Yeah, they have medics. They can REVIVE people you've downed. Really, REALLY freaking annoying, since you'll get a place mostly clear, miss the medic, and they bring half the opposing forces back before you're able to actually down the buggers. Their tactics also no longer follow the age-old "whack a mole" kind of behaviour they followed originally.
Expect missions to take 3-4x longer (yup, you get a dozen more missions once you hit World Tier 1), because not only are they smarter, they're harder to down, and there's a LOT more of them.
^Like I said... Bigger gun. it's from the specialization.
^Who'd have thought.... Purples being better, but that's just how World Tier 1 gear is. Supposedly Tier 4 is something like 50% more powerful than Tier 1.
Oh, and upgrading your crafting bench once you've hit World Tier 1... Gets expensive, really, really fast.
