Resident Evil Village DLC, The Winter’s Expansion has arrived, including additional Mercenaries content and a new short campaign to play with Ethan Winter’s daughter, Rose Winters. Shortly after the DLC’s opening sequence, you’ll find yourself in Lady Dimitrescu’s castle, tasked with finding three masks to obtain a crystal. Here is where you can find all three masks.
The bronze mask
You start in the main hall where the statue puzzle is. From there, head to the dining room, which communicates with the courtyard and the kitchen. The courtyard door is closed with a chain. You can find the bolt cutters in the back right area of the kitchen, which contains an enemy. Grab the bolt cutters and head to the yard. The bronze mask is actually in the center of the courtyard, but you need to unlock an ability first, so head to the left side of the courtyard and enter.
Inside, you’ll climb a flight of stairs and enter a library where there are five enemies. There’s a ton of goop on the ground that you need to dodge, limiting you to just one path through this area. The next room has a ton of goop on the floor, requiring you to climb stairs and cross the top of a shelf to knock over a ladder, which you can cross to clear the room. The next area has a ladder, which you can climb into the attic. Head to the back left section to find a glowing white object, which grants Rose the ability to destroy glowing light bulbs, which will remove some of the slime.
From there, head back to the yard and clean up any bulbs you come across along the way to stock up. In the yard, destroy the bulb and get the mask. From there, return to the main hall.
The silver mask
In order to reach the Silver Mask, you will first need to go upstairs to the main hall, which you can now access by destroying some bulbs. You will need to head to the left side once you reach the top of the stairs. You’ll be ambushed by a number of enemies, including a big one that you can’t fight. Instead, run through this area following the glowing words into a room that locks you in. Go through the fireplace and up the stairs to find another glowing test tube, which gives Rose the power to stun enemies.
Go back through the locked door and immediately to your right there is a door. Inside this room on the table at the back is the monocular key, which is needed. There are about five enemies here, but you don’t need to fight them. Take it and go back down to the main hall. From there, return to the courtyard and go to the back right corner, where you’ll find a door with a giant red eyeball on it. Unlock this door with the monocular key and enter.
Head up the stairs and you’ll be in a hallway with a group of dead Rose clones. There’s an enemy down the hall, but you need to head for the door in the middle of the hall. This brings you into the bathroom where there are four statues that you need to activate to open the next passage. The order is Hanged, Sword, Drowned, Arrows, which is Right Front, Left Back, Left Front, Right Back.
Once complete, the bath will open up to the basement, which houses a large enemy that’s immune to bullets. There’s a pipe bomb here that you can damage her with, but don’t worry, there aren’t enough to kill her. Instead, you need to head to the left corner of the first room, clear a light bulb, and head to a second room. In the second room, there is a path on the left side, but you must approach it from the right side to clear another bulb. During this sequence, the big monster is likely to notice you, at which point you have to run to the entrance and wait for it to reset.
After clearing the way, you’ll crouch in a secluded area, where the silver mask is at the top of the stairs. Once you grab it, the big monster will go through the wall behind it, and you’ll have to run through the area out of the basement. There is goop in this area that you need to avoid, but sticking to the left side of both rooms will allow you to get around it.
The golden mask
Once inside the bathroom, head down the hall. A new door will be opened and the old exit path will be blocked. Enter the new room and go through the double doors. Inside is a painting of a snake, which you will need for a puzzle. Go through the next door and you’ll be back in the original hallway. Follow the path back to the courtyard. In the courtyard are a group of enemies and the big monster, but you can get past them to the main hall. Here, go upstairs and through the door at the top of the stairs.
Inside this room is a painting puzzle, where you have to line up the paintings so that all the predators face their prey. On the left side there is Butterfly, Frog, Sheep and on the right side there is Spider, Snake, Wolf. Completing this puzzle unlocks the triocular key. From there, go back to the courtyard, but stop in the dining room. The triocular key can unlock the cabinet containing the shotgun, which you can grab now.
Go past the enemies in the yard to the door on the left side. Directly inside the door is another door with three red eyeballs on it. Open the door and enter. You’ll find the golden mask in the center of the music room, surrounded by goop. To reach it, there are three bulbs that you need to clear. First, head to the right side of the room near the stage and look at the balcony. Once the first bulb is destroyed, a piano will fall and four enemies will appear. Use the piano to walk to the center of the room and clear a light bulb, which makes a path upstairs. Go up the stairs and find the last light bulb on the other side of the balcony, behind an enemy. This drops the final piano. Grabbing the Golden Mask triggers a cutscene.
Reach the statue
After a short cutscene, you’ll be locked in a cell, tasked with finding the real light bulbs in a room full of fakes within 90 seconds. The first is located at the bottom left of the room on the side opposite the bars. There are no consequences to choosing the wrong one, so don’t worry. The second is in a broken wall inside the cell, behind an enemy. The third and final bulb is in the center of the ceiling outside the bars.
Once cleared, the cell opens and you can navigate the underground area where there is only one normal enemy. Go forward and you will find yourself in the kitchen. Go through the dining hall and back to the main hall, where you can place the masks on the statue. This leads into a boss fight, so make sure you’re prepared.
