Creative Assembly has revealed Gor-Rok, a new Legendary Lord for Total War: Warhammer II, will be available for free to coincide with the upcoming The Hunter and The Beast DLC.
Announced by Total War on Twitter, the character will be free-of-charge when the expansion pack launches on September 11. Known as the “Great White Lizard”, Gor-Rok fights side-by-side with Lord Kroak – previous Lizardmen have needed to unlock Kroak during battle. The Lizardman is a cornerstone of the battle line, the “rock upon which Itza’s enemies are broken” according to the tweet. Going by the gameplay footage available on Steam, they aren’t kidding. The brutish warrior stands tall over his adversaries, knocking bodies around with ease.
Gor-Rok’s strength lies in his defensive attributes, with abilities and skills that focus on rejuvenation and boosting physical prowess. The official description reads: “Leading the faction of Itza from the revered Temple City of the same name, Gor-Rok strikes out with Lord Kroak to ensure the Great Plan is followed and that Lustria is cleansed of usurpers. A powerful defensive warrior, he has a number of unique skills granting him a range of bonuses including perfect vigour, physical resistance, terror and regeneration.”
The Hunter and The Beast contains two other Legendary Lords: Markus Wulfhart, who leads the Huntsmarshal’s Expedition (Empire), and Nakai The Wanderer, who leads the Spirit of the Jungle. Both bring with them new quest-chains, legendary items, skill-trees and more.
Gor-Rok is a veteran Saurus Warrior with the scars to prove it. He forms the solid centre of a Lizardman battle line: the rock upon which Itza’s enemies are broken.
Gor-Rok is a free Legendary Lord arriving with the release of The Hunter & The Beast.

Creative Assembly has been regular with new content for the game. The last paid DLC was The Prophet and the Warlock in April of this year, and there was the free ‘Tiktaq’to’ update, which added Tiktaq’to as a playable character and Tlaqua as a playable subfaction.
Gor-Rok will come crashing into Total War: Warhammer 2 on September 11.
