What to expect from Hello Neighbor 2?

The story continues from the prequel while also featuring some elements of the spinoff, where some people have gone missing, including Nicky Roth, the protagonist of Hello Neighbor, and there’s something very peculiar about Mr. Peterson. Everyone is afraid of him and there are rumors that children come into his house but never come back.
Some people also said that he liked to lock people up in his basement, however, no one has solid proof. There are also strange sounds coming from his basement. You get the feeling that Mr. Peterson might actually be the culprit behind this.
So you have to break into his house and find out the truth. You’ll need to meet a whole roster of familiar faces from the franchise to solve the confusing mystery and expose the reality. The game should feature an open-world concept.
