SEATTLE, April 7th – People are going missing in the sleepy little town of Raven Brooks, and publisher tinyBuild invite players to begin investigating today. With pre-orders now open with exclusive Beta access, the world of Hello Neighbor 2 is ready and waiting for aspiring sleuths to sneak, stalk and puzzle their way through.
What secrets do the townsfolk hold? And how does the reclusive inventor (and antagonist of the first game) Mr Peterson fit in? Start unraveling the town's mysteries today in the Beta, and close the case when the game launches December 6th. Get a peek at what's coming in the dev vlog video below!
Your snooping won't go unnoticed, of course. From the leery town police to paranoid townsfolk, you'll have to keep things quiet and move quickly if you want to avoid ending up on a missing persons list yourself, especially as you'll be up against some downright fiendish AI that learns from the player.
Just to give you a little taste of what to expect, the titles of the three DLCs are Late Fees, Back To School and Hello-copter, the first two adding new environments and puzzles to the mix, while the third introduces an exciting new gameplay mechanic.
Don't worry about ruining the mystery during this early peek, either. While the open Beta will give players a good taste of what to expect from the full game, we're keeping the best and juiciest surprises and secrets for launch day. Still, the clues are all there - dive in now and see what you can figure out!
Those wanting to dig deeper into the many mysteries of the town can check out a collection of best-selling books, an animated TV show pilot, a comic series and a party game.
