No Man's Sky Trade
Players can collect resources for trading in "No Man's Sky." Hello Games

The newest trailer for “No Man’s Sky” is finally here. The video series is now looking at the trading aspect of the game.

Seen in the video below, the video starts off with gameplay of how players can gather resources from the planets that they visit. From there, they can buy and sell exotic items from around the galaxy. But more than just a mechanic to get through the different universes, there seems to be a story with every trade, and one that can be enhanced as the player progresses. This appears to be possible with upgrading one’s own character and weapons.

While the new trailer marks just how near the launch of “No Man’s Sky” is, it still seems like the game and its developer are not yet saved from controversy. Just before the height of SDCC 2016 hit, the “No Man’s Sky” was surrounded by an issue involving the superformula used in the game.

Eurogamer spotted a report from a Dutch source that pointed to a copyright fight that the game is involved in. For the most part, the story revolved around how superformula creator Johan Gielis and Genicap is reportedly bringing to the table the need to sit down and discuss the use of the patented superformula if it will be used for “No Man’s Sky.”

“We believe ‘No Man’s Sky’ is the beginning of a new generation of games,” said Genicap’s Jeroen Sparrow to Eurogamer in a statement. “If Hello Games used our technology, at some stage we will have to get to the table.”

Hello Games’ Sean Murray has finally cleared the air by rolling out his own response via Twitter: “’No Man’s Sky’ doesn’t actually use this ‘superformula’ thing or infringe a patent. This is a non-story… everybody chill.”

From the looks off it, and from Murray’s response, it seems that this issue is a non-issue since the developer and Genicap are the ones who need to discuss terms. Perhaps what has gotten fans worried and in on the issue is the biggest question: Will this mean another delay for “No Man’s Sky?”

As far as what’s been communicated goes, Hello Games has not yet retracted the announced Aug. 9 release date. “No Man’s Sky” has already gone gold early this July, and considering how the announcement tweet is still pinned, there doesn’t seem to be a change in plans.
