Are you prepared for Wrath of the Lich King? WoW Insider has you covered!

New previewed and launches Wed

And just when we thought we had a firm grasp on and all its bells and whistles we're slapped in the face with not only a new aesthetic feel, but a boatload of new features and enhancements for Halo 3.

In an interview with TeamXbox, development lead Chris Gossett reveals all the new Halo 3 implemented features, upgrades and spiffiness that will be rolling out on this Wednesday and be warned ... it's a doosy. Among the new features (of which all can be seen after the break) are ways of sharing videos and screenshots, voting on the community's best, keeping track of your campaign stats and keeping track of your multiplayer stats as well. Speaking of which, multiplayer stat tracking Halo 3 is off the hook, crazy insanely crazily detailed to the twelfth power. Seriously, the new's Halo 3 stat system blows Halo 2's out of the water and around the moon. And since there's too much to mention we advise looking after the break to read all the new upgrades and making the jump to check out a the full interview and a few screenshots too. The new and improved will roll out this Wednesday, prepare your eyes and mind ... it's going to be an information overload.

Oh, and did you notice there will be special medals? Oh yeah! Online
