Read on to learn more about the curious history behind Neon City and why RPG game players can expect some unconventional quest structures.

What is Neon City in Starfield?

Located on what was once a fishing platform in the middle of the ocean, Starfield’s Neon City is now a pleasure city with exclusive one-of-a-kind pleasures. This change in plans occurred when the Xenofresh corporation architects discovered a unique type of fish that possessed mind-altering properties. This led to its commercialization on an unprecedented scale, with mass production of the drug Aurora. Banned everywhere else, Neon City is your destination to take your mind across higher planes of existence in more ways than one.

What is there in Neon City?

The Astral Lounge is a location of particular interest in the city. Its peculiar dancers and bright neon aesthetic make it a great location for quest givers or quest plot lines themselves. Other highlights include the Mining League, the Ryujin Industries HQ, Newell’s Good, Xenofresh Factory, Tranquilitea HQ, Ebbside, and a selection of shops and vendors. Beyond the city is open water, inhabited by aqautic creatures and not much else.

The space version of New Vegas is where you’ll meet all sorts of sleazy and manipulative folk. Profit is a powerful motivator and Aurora’s psychotropic properties whip up a storm among inhabitants and newcomers alike.

It’s also home to the headquarters of Ryujin Industries, one of the game’s many factions, and one of major corporations of the Starfield world. They are among the groups using the planet’s resources to create medical supplies, and of course, psychedelics like Aurora.
