The third in Sony’s four-part series of No Man’s Sky trailers was recently released, proffering a brief, further look at some of the gameplay elements the astronomical sandbox game has to offer.
Named TRADE, this trailer aptly hones in on the game’s transaction system. The 1-minute video shows the player’s ability to harvest natural materials from the native surroundings, identifying numerous types of plant and mining precious ore from rocks via a phaser-like device. Players can even extend their technical know-how by forging blueprints from newly discovered technology.
Resources can be bought and sold across different regions in the game, allowing players to discover where their materials are most valuable and trade for various upgrades. However, whilst upgrading to a larger spaceship will allow you to carry even more goods, you’ll also be more likely to get hijacked by a formidable crew of space pirates.
TRADE is the third of four promotional trailers for the upcoming space game. The previous two looked into No Man’s Sky’s exploration and combat elements, whilst the final trailer in the series will focus on surviving amidst the game’s expansive wildernesses.
No Man’s Sky releases for the PlayStation 4 on August 9 in North America and August 10 in Europe. The PC version, meanwhile, will arrive a little later on August 12 Worldwide.
