The third trailer in Hello Games’ four-part trailer series that delves into the four key gameplay pillars of No Man’s Sky has been released, and this time the focus is centered on the trading mechanic which will complement the game’s resource-gathering and equipment upgrades. In the new trailer, you'll be able to see how the resources gather from various different planets can be used not only to directly upgrade your spaceship, spacesuit, and laser weapon, but also to negotiate trades with the wide variety of alien races that you will inevitably encounter in the game.
Interacting with these different alien races will be vital, since it allows you to learn the “technologies” (i.e. recipes) needed to craft upgrades in the first place. As you continue to interact with these different alien races, you’ll slowly learn to understand their languages, which can both lead to better trading deals and clue you in on unique trading opportunities. For instance, one alien race might tell you that a certain resource is scarce on their planet, allowing you to trade that resource for a much higher profit.

There’s only one trailer left in the series, and that trailer will focus on the survival element in No Man's Sky. No Man's Sky will be released for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows on August 9th.
