The game was well received by critics, with an 85 ranking at Game Rankings. It was praised for eliminating much of the micromanagement inherent in real-time strategy games while introducing new concepts to the genre, and for the strong AI opponents and multiplayer support. It was criticized for the somewhat lackluster world, and the "inability to establish a distinctive atmosphere." The game was nominated for "Computer Strategy Game of the Year" by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. It won "Strategy Game of the Year" awards in Computer Gaming World, PC Gamer, Computer Games Magazine, GamePen and other magazines.
The game was ported to Linux by Loki Software, shipping on August 24, 2001. A stand-alone expansion pack, Kohan: Ahriman's Gift, was released on November 6, 2001. A special edition was published in May 2002, featuring new heroes, maps and AI options, but not the expansion pack. A Kohan Mod Tool was released on June 17, 2002.
