The Stellar Blade Skin Suit for EVE that got people talking, will also likely get people killed in-game.

The leaked Stellar Blade demo revealed a new skin suit outfit for the main character EVE. Images and clips of the NSFW Stellar Blade outfit spread on social media like wildfire. However, what people did not initially realise is that equipping the outfit actually punishes players.

The Stellar Blade "Skin" Costume is one of 30 different options and surprisingly comes absolutely free of charge. From the ones we've seen so far, it is also the most risqué - although they have been glimpses of a bunny outfit. So how does the game punish players who equip the Skin outfit?
