Steam Down 6th August, That's Tomorrow!
Steam hasn't died! Just some scheduled downtime taking place. If you are in OZ, you will probably be asleep or at work anyway unless you are completing a marathon gaming session.
Beginning at 6:00 pm Pacific time Thursday August 6th, we will be performing software maintenance on some Steam servers. We expect the resulting downtime to last three hours at most, putting the end of the window at 9:00 pm Pacific time.
Some Steam services will be offline during this time. Affected services will include the Steam Community, in-game matchmaking or lobbies, downloading games from Steam content servers, and making purchases from the Steam store. Games that do not rely on Steam matchmaking services should remain playable.
News updates and any further information will be posted in this space.
