Saladin’s Leader ability is called “Righteousness of the Faith” (also a translation of his name).

See the Warriors of Chaos in Total War: Warhammer

Creative Assembly have given us a sneak peak into that oh so controversial DLC faction - The Warriors of Chaos.

10 Minutes of Far Cry Primal Gameplay

In this new gameplay walk through, Ubisoft shows off some core mechanics such as animal taming, hunting for upgrades and seeking glorious caveman revenge for your fallen tribe. This video seems to have put most of our initial concerns to rest with the variety of things to do looking more and more in depth. Just the variety of tameable animals and an owl that can drop bombs (brilliant) has me coloured
