Kohan's unique blend of strategic and innovative gameplay will appeal to any strategy, tactical or RPG gamer. While adhering to some of the basics of traditional RTS style games, Kohan's distinctive economy model eliminates the need for micro management of resources, leaving the player with more time for strategic combat. With its company based combat system, use of military concepts such as formations, visual range, supply range and even morale, in addition to its gripping storyline and role-playing elements, players will become immersed in the lush and visually stunning fantasy land of Khaldun where dragons, spells and swords are common place.
