What to Expect from Hello Neighbor 2?
Hello Neighbor 2 will take you back to the strange town known as Raven Brooks. However, you won’t be trying to find a way down to your creepy neighbor’s basement to unveil his secrets. Instead, you’ll be playing a local journalist named Quentin who is suspicious of his creepy neighbor, Mr. Peterson.
The story continues from the prequel while also featuring some elements from the spin-offs, where some people have gone missing including Nicky Roth, the protagonist of Hello Neighbor, and there is something very peculiar about Mr. Peterson. Everyone is afraid of him and there are rumors that children go into his house but never return.
Some people have also said that he is fond of locking people up in his basement, however, no one has a piece of solid evidence. There are also odd sounds coming from his basement. You have a feeling that Mr. Peterson might actually be the culprit behind all this.
So, you have to break into his house and uncover the truth. You will have to meet an entire roster of known faces from the franchise to solve the puzzling mystery and expose the reality. The game is expected to feature an open-world concept.
