On December 6, 2022, Hello Neighbor 2 will be released on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and the PC. On the first day, the game will be accessible via Game Pass.

Welcome Home, Second Story

Being a standalone sequel, Hello Neighbor 2 can be enjoyed by players without them needing to have played or understood the first game.

When players return to Raven Brooks, they aren’t the nosy little neighbors who can’t keep their nose out of other people’s businesses as they were before. Instead, gamers assume control of a journalist doing an investigation on Mr. Peterson and visiting Raven Brooks. But it appears that, aside from Mr. Peterson, there is a problem throughout the entire community.

In the horror stealth game Hello Neighbor 2, Quentin, the main character, must sneak into a number of different buildings and solve puzzles. The necessary things are typically dispersed over a number of rooms, thus Hello Neighbor 2 players must determine which item goes with which puzzle in order to solve the mystery.

Act 1 takes set at the blue home known as the 910 Friendly Court, which served as the scene of a crime in Hello Neighbor 2. Aaron Peterson is taken hostage by Theodore Peterson, also known as the Neighbor, at the beginning of the game, and is then locked inside the home. This encourages Quentin to raid the neighbor’s house and find out all of his secrets for good.

Players must acquire four keys to the Neighbor’s basement in order to complete Act 1 of Hello Neighbor 2. Each key is located at 910 Friendly Court after completing a problem and running away from Officer Nielsen, who is watching the residence. From the WCB4 TV, where players were woken up, one can go to the house by going down the slope, then turning right. There are four riddles.
