Once you step inside Dimitrescu Castle in Resident Evil Village, you'll find four mysterious angel statues in the Room of Four. Each angel has a slot where their head should be, and a sign on the nearby locked door reads "Hide the blind gaze of angels and only then will you be saved." This locked door happens to be the exit, so this puzzle is mandatory if you want to survive. Each angel requires a different mask, so you'll need to find the Mask of Pain, Mask of Joy, Mask of Rage, and Mask of Pleasure to escape the halls of Dimitrescu's Castle. Here's where to find all four Angel Masks in Resident Evil Village.
How to get the Mask of Pain
The first mask is quite easy to find. You are basically forced to find it, start the treasure hunt for the other three masks. Play as normal in the Castle Dimitrescu section of the game. You'll take down one of Lady Dimitrescu's daughters in a short boss fight, get the courtyard key to access the outside of the castle, then solve the puzzle in the ablution room. All of this eventually culminates in a chase sequence with Lady Dimitrescu in the castle dungeon, and the Mask of Pain awaits at the end. Once you've taken it, you're free to explore the castle at your leisure, but Lady Dimitrescu will now hunt you down.
How to get the Mask of Joy
The Mask of Joy is located in the Hall of Joy. To get there, use Dimitrescu's key to unlock the courtyard door. This takes you to the Opera. Solve the piano puzzle to get the iron badge key, then use that key on the locked door upstairs to access the library. The second Dimitrescu sister will attack you in there, but it's another short boss fight. Pull the lever on one of the pillars to open the skylight and let in the cold, leaving it vulnerable to attack. After taking care of her, head to the Hall of Joy and collect the Mask of Joy from the statue.
How to get the mask of rage
The Mask of Rage is located in the Tower of Rage, accessible only by zipline from the Belfry. This means that you will have to take a ride on the roofs of the Dimitrescu castle. It seems like a daunting task, but it's actually a simple linear path that you need to follow. From the Hall of Joy, take the new door to enter the Workshop. Here you have to solve the bell puzzle by shooting 5 bells hidden in the room to open a secret passage. This secret path takes you upstairs to the attic where you will find the F2 sniper rifle. When you're ready, continue out of the attic and onto the rooftops. The roofs are linear, so keep going straight. Eventually, you will take a short flight of stairs to the Belfry where you can take a zip line up to the Tower of Rage. Take the mask of rage from the statue and take the elevator back inside.
How to get the Mask of Pleasure
The Pleasure Mask is located in the Pleasure Room on the second floor of Dimitrescu Castle. Use Dimitrescu's Key to access the hallway connecting the second floor of the Main Hall and the Pleasure Room. The Mask of Pleasure will be right inside sitting on a statue, but picking it up will cause a barrier to block your entrance. The only way out is to crawl through the chimney, but be prepared for a fight.
The crawl space takes you to the armory, where the last of Dimitrescu's daughters will ambush you in a boss battle. There is a crack in the stone wall with a cold wind blowing. There's also a bunch of pipe bombs on the table in the corner, so put two and two together and throw a pipe bomb at the weak part of the wall. This will let in cold air, making the girl vulnerable to your weapons. At this point, just shoot her multiple times until she dies. Then grab the animal skull mounted above the fireplace and return to the Pleasure Room.
The Mounted Animal Skull will help you get out of the Pleasure Room, but you must first inspect it in your inventory for it to be useful. Turn it over and unscrew it from the wood it was mounted on. This will leave you with a normal animal skull, which you can then place in the same slot where you found the Pleasure Mask. This will trick the trap into lifting the door, so now you can just leave as normal. With all four masks in hand, return to the Room of Four.
Which masks go where?
When you have all four masks in your possession, all you need to do is place them on the correct angel statues to unlock the door leading to the Tower of Worship. From left to right, the correct masks are grief, pleasure, joy, and rage. It shouldn't take you too long to place all four masks in the right places, but keep an eye out for Lady Dimitrescu just in case. If she appears, duck into the vault and you'll be fine. Don't forget to save on the typewriter after placing the masks as well.
