Investigate a Strange and Smarter Threat in Hello Neighbor 2

Hello Neighbor 2 is set to bring a whole new level of stealth and tension to the series.

One of the Xbox Showcase pre-show world premiers was a sequel to the cult classic Hello Neighbor, unsurprisingly titled, Hello Neighbor 2

Just like you'd expect, there's plenty of smart stealth involved in Hello Neighbor 2. You play as a reporter named Quentin, investigating strange disappearances in Raven Brooks. The home your investigation leads you to is none other than the home from the original Hello Neighbor. Only this time, it’s occupied by a strange creature in a raven costume (It isn’t. The trailer shows it’s the original neighbor, but it's still fun).

Like before, you’ll use everything you can in the environment to distract and outwit your foe. It appears there’s the same sense of immediacy and dread as you figure out ways to keep the neighbor from realizing you’re there — and then the desperate scramble to find some means of escape once you’re discovered. 

But developer tinyBuild said Hello Neighbor 2 uses smart AI, where enemies learn your patterns and stalk you accordingly. So you’ll have to bear that in mind as you explore the environs in Ravens Brook since your investigation includes multiple places outside the house.

If you can't wait to get your hands on it, you can try the Hello Neighbor 2 alpha available now.

Hello Neighbor 2 is planned for a 2021 release date on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC, and it supports Smart Delivery as well. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Hello Neighbor 2 news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
