Next Horizon adventure to trade slick PS5 graphics for blocky LEGO

New Horizon LEGO rumors have surfaced that show our next adventure with Aloy won't be on PS5, but will take place in the bricky graphical world of real life.

We've enjoyed some fine digital graphics on PS5 while collecting all the Horizon Forbidden West trophies, but you'd better prepare yourself for Aloy's next adventure taking a graphical downgrade. We're joking, of course, because the new Horizon LEGO rumors will bring us blocky graphics in real life and an instruction manual full of joy!

New LEGO Horizon sets coming before a new PS5 game

It's been rumored that Sony and LEGO are scheduled for a second deal by introducing new sets. Coming from prolific leaker and well-connected journalist Tom Henderson, it's almost certainly another Horizon collaboration. You may remember the first LEGO Horizon set that featured a cool Tallneck model and Aloy minifigure.
"An announcement is on the horizon," Henderson teased before following up. "From what I know, there's a LEGO Horizon trailer that's ready to go. It also suggests that the rumors of a showcase soon are accurate."

It's increasingly likely that we will get a PlayStation Showcase blowout soon that will bring us the next big slate of PS5 games. I suspect the LEGO Horizon reveal probably won't be a part of any showcase — the first Tallneck set was simply announced outside of any major event. Sony is likely to follow the same pattern for any follow-up LEGO sets.
There is so much that LEGO and Horizon could produce together. Of course, you could get more creatures to build — from the Tyrannosaurus-inspired Thurderjaw to the huge Pterodactyl-like Stormbird. But, I think sets of the incredible villages and buildings from the Horizon games would be equally as cool. The tavern you first see in Horizon Forbidden West would be awesome, as would the mountain home that Aloy's team sets up complete with minifigures of the main cast.

So, Aloy's next adventure may not be a PS5 graphical powerhouse to rank amongst the best Horizon games — but we're excited for blocky fun anyway! What do you think of the potential of more LEGO Horizon sets? Let me know in the comments below and I'll catch you down there, TrueTrophies builders!
