In the game menu of Civilization: Beyond Earth, there is an option labelled 'Play in starships'. It appears to be disabled.

Game menu of Civ: Beyond Earth (press esc)

I know there is a game titled Sid Meier's Starships - does this have anything to do with it?

What is this button, what does it do, and how can I unlock/click it?

  • You need to own and install both Civ:BE and Starships
  • You need to login to your 2K Account on both games, so they are registered there
  • After winning a game press "one more turn"
  • The Play in Starships button should now be usable and will transfer your save to Starships
  • This allows you to start a Starships game with several bonuses.

Here is a list detailling all the possible bonuses: Civ-Wiki

The hybrid affinities essentially grant you the abilities of both, so they are much stronger than the basic affinities you can pick in Starships.

    Angus: Yes, This also works vice versa, I.e. you can unlock new things in Civ: Be by playing Starships. I updated the answer with a link to a wiki-page detailing the bonuses. @AntoineHejlík As far as I know, only the 2K Account works. – Dulkan May 2 '16 at 11:56
