"Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders" is an expansion pack for Heretic, consisting of two new episode that continue the story from where the original game left off. It was developed by Raven Software and published by id Software in March of 1996.
This expansion pack contains an additional 2 episodes, picking up right after Corvus defeats D'Sparil. They are considered to be a lot more challenging than the original 3 episodes...
- The Ossuary, an old, dead world conquered by D'Sparil long ago.
- The Stagnant Demesne, the pit where the Serpent Rider was spawned.
Despite this, there are no new monsters, weapons, or other gameplay changes.
