Update: Steam is Currently Down for Many Players

Steam Down

UPDATE 2: While the original outage was resolved, the store is down as of 4pm Eastern Time on September 9th.

Update: The issues seem to have been resolved by now.

It’s not just you, Valve’s Steam service is currently down for many players worldwide. This means you can probably play your single player games, but getting into multiplayer, or joining up with friends could be tough until they work out the issues. Some users have been able to remain online, and others can still get on, so whatever is causing it is intermittent and random at the moment.

Steam has a few of these every week or so, with the service having intermittent issues for one reason or another. Valve is usually quick to get it back up and running though, so just play some Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain until it comes back.

Unfortunately we usually don’t get any specific cause for the outage, which can last minutes or hours depending on the problem. We’ll keep this article updated with news as it comes out, so check back here if you can’t get on later.

Overall Steam has had a more stable experience than the console services, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, which have been quite infamous for their outages since late last year. While Steam does go down periodically it is usually for a briefer amount of time, and less services are impacted.

Hopefully the current issues are resolved soon and players can get back to their PC gaming ASAP.
