Server outage takes down Steam store and community
Thursday 15 June 2017 - 00:11 BST

The Steam store and community are currently experiencing connectivity issues following a server outage. The issues affect millions of players worldwide.

Steam users started to experience issues at around 10 PM GMT on Wednesday June 14th, 2017. At the time of writing, the service has been down for almost 20 minutes.
The server outage seems to have taken down the Steam store and community, which is used by gamers to purchase titles and give reviews.

The server outage is the second major Steam server outages this year. Earlier this year the Steam community, chat services and the API services used by web applications to connect to the Steam database were also experiencing server issues.

It is currently unknown when Valve expects services to be available again.

11:15 PM update: Services are slowly starting to come back online again.
