Steam down reports have seen a spike today, with Steam friends network unreachable and 502 bad gateway issues being reported.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has received a surge of Steam down reports today.
Down Detector has registered hundreds of Steam down reports, with login problems and online gaming issues reported.
The Down Detector outage map also says that the Steam down issues are mainly affecting users in the UK, Europe and some parts of the US.
Steam users also took to social network site Twitter, with fans of the Valve service reporting problems with the Steam friends network.
One fan tweeted: “Cannot connect to #steam friend list, nor start the game”.
Another posted: “Hey @steam_games, you’re most likely already aware of this, but Steam Friends is down. You have an ETA for a fix?”
One added: “Steam friends network is down, this is not an epic gamer moment”.
And another wrote: “@Steam_Support Friends Network Unreachable? is this a global down?”
Express.co.uk has contacted Valve for comment about the reported Steam issues and asked if there’s an ETA for a fix.
The news comes after Steam users also reported issues with the store at the start of the Steam summer sale 2019.
At the start of the Steam sale last month users of the Valve digital PC distribution were unable to access it.
Down Detector registered a spike in Steam down reports when the current Steam sale kicked off.
Users reported the Steam store website as not loading and a 502 bad gateway error message appearing when they tried to access it.
At the time Steam users on Twitter reported issues with the digital PC games marketplace which is not loading for them.
One Steam fan tweeted: “STEAM SUMMER SALE IS HER…….and the site is down”.
Another posted: “Steam is down! I just want to give you all my money”.
One added: “Steam is down.”
And another wrote: “The Steam store is down. That probably means it’s Steam sale again.”
