Starfield Ryujin Industries

The Starfield Ryujin Industries faction gives the Spacefarer a taste of life in a mega-corporation, here's all you need to know about them.

Last updated We’ve updated this page with the latest information.

Who are the Starfield Ryujin Industries faction? Of the many Starfield groups that have been revealed so far, Ryujin Industries are one of the most mysterious. This is one of a handful of mega-corporations that have been established across the Settled Systems and it has a particularly big presence in the water-locked pleasure city of Neon, which was initially constructed by the Xenofresh Corporation for use as a fishing platform.

The group has been mentioned and featured in a few trailers, but unlike Starfield factions like the Crimson Fleet, Constellation, United Colonies, and Freestar Collective, we don’t know what their goals are or what their members look like.

When was Ryujin Industries founded?

While we know very little about Ryujin Industries, there are a few things we can glean from the faction’s name and location. “Ryujin” more than likely refers to the Japanese Shinto deity of the sea, a tutelary spirit. It was believed that the deity was a bringer of rain and thunder, and knowledgeable on medicine. The medicinal aspect stands out, and we’ve already seen a number of medical facilities in Neon such as ‘Reliant Medical’. Given that the other faction in town is interested in producing narcotics, perhaps Ryujin Industries focuses on cures and treatments?

When combining this with Neon’s past with the Xenofresh Corporation – the creators of the drug Aurora – we feel tempted to speculate that these two corporations will be rivals. Perhaps we’ll learn more during the next Starfield showcase.

While a corporation doesn’t technically have a capital city, Ryujin appear to have made the city of Neon its main base of operations. Why they have chosen a ‘Pleasure City’ as their main location and how this reflects on their motto remains to be seen: “Our products. Your life. One dream.” 

How to join Ryujin Industries

Can you join Ryujin Industries? Yes, the player can join Ryujin Industries by applying for a job and proving their mettle as a corpo, which is briefly explained in the ‘Into the Starfield – Ep2: Made for Wanderers’ trailer. Lead quest designer Will Shen says it’s got one of the best starts of all of the factions in Starfield.

As one of the Starfield factions alongside the United Colonies, Crimson Fleet, and Freestar Collective, it’s safe to assume that Ryujin Industries will be a key player in the Settled Systems and might even have a role to play in the outcome of the main story.
