The game is planned to be released in four iterations, each selling for 240 Microsoft Points ($3.00). In later chapters there will be more features like mining, inventory, and crafting. Players can only have access to these features if they buy the chapters that they are in.

It will also have multiplayer with up to 31 players using Xbox Live avatars. Each Xbox will have the ability to function as a server.
