HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM: Steam is down for thousands, and it's only getting worse so far

Valve didn't publically comment on any Steam server issues, but we expect the team is on the case to get players back online.


While offline, players won't be able to make progress in many games on Steam, instead having to play in Offline Mode, which restricts game modes and progress across many of the service's biggest titles.

As of 8:15 pm EST, Steam servers are up and running once again. The technical problems kicked over half of active Steam gamers offline - but things should be back in order now.
