More details on rumoured LEGO Horizon video game collab

More details have surfaced on the rumoured LEGO Horizon collaboration, teasing a brand new video game with ‘realistic graphics’.

Word of a follow-up to 2022’s 76989 Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck originally surfaced earlier this week, with multiple sources stating that an announcement is right around the corner. What form that follow-up would take was not quite so clear: would it be another physical LEGO set, or a virtual LEGO Horizon video game?

Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson now claims the LEGO Group and Sony are working on a game, tentatively titled LEGO Horizon Adventures, which sources say is ‘Horizon Forbidden West but with LEGO’ and will have ‘realistic graphics’. That would be a very different sort of LEGO video game to TT Games’ licensed tie-ins – and something that could be closer aesthetically to LEGO Builder’s Journey.

Tom says that the ‘exact details of the game are unclear’, but a trailer for the game was reportedly finished last month (which would chime with his earlier comments that the announcement is ‘ready to go’). A PlayStation Showcase event is also rumoured to be happening in the weeks ahead, providing the perfect venue for Sony and the LEGO Group to drop LEGO Horizon Adventures.

Until that happens, chalk this one up as a rumour for now. But if it does come to pass, it’ll be interesting to see whether the LEGO Group follows up with more physical sets – it would be a shame to have LEGO Horizon on consoles and not on LEGO Store shelves, given 76989 Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck retired at the end of 2023.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
