What you need to know

  • Steam is a massive PC gaming platform.
  • Many users couldn't access the store or play games on April 7.
  • It's now back up after many hours.
  • If it doesn't work, try restarting your computer.

Updated April 7, 2020: As of 4 PM EDT, Steam is back up.

It seems like almost the entire planet is under quarantine, people are staying home and either working or playing games. Well, if you're part of the latter like me, you'll be disheartened to know that Steam appears to be down for many across the globe. It's unclear what the problem is at the moment, but we'll keep you posted as soon as it's back online.

Steam has tens of millions of active users and it seems like many won't be able to access the store or play games. Let's hope Valve is aware of the problem and will have a solution, shortly.
