Steam is down as users report they’re unable to connect to the Steam network
Steam users are facing a frustrating Sunday as reports of a huge steam outage hits on Sunday, June 28.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has received a surge of Steam down reports with the majority of issues relating to connection problems.
The Down Detector outage map says the Steam network issues are hitting users mainly in the UK, Europe. There are some reports in the United States, but the east coast will only have started waking it up it's bound to be less than mainland Europe.
That being said, in the last 10 minutes over 2000 users (Update: now over 4000) have reported issues with the Steam network.
It also appears that this isn't just a problem for the Steam Store, but the entire Steam service, with users reporting that they can't log in to play.
The unofficial @SteamStatus Twitter account has also seen noted problems for the steam network.
Here's a quick cross selection of users impacted:
"Anyone able to log in today? Can't seem to buy anything. Was trying to buy metro exodus but wont let me. When I log in via the website it says server down"
"Steam problems, can't get on it! Everything else internetty working fine."
It's possible the servers could be fixed relatively soon, and this might just be a blip.

Hopefully steam will want the issues resolved as quickly as possible so that users can dive back into their games, but also so they can jump into the new Steam Summer sale that started this week.
Users can also get an additional £5 off their first purchase over £30. This discount applies to your entire basket rather than just a single game.
Those looking to grab a bargain shouldn't be disappointed, with the likes of Doom Eternal for £24.99, Borderlands 3 for £24.99 or Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for £27.49.
Dig a little deeper and you'll even find some crazy low prices on old classics, like:
Payday 2 for 74p, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for 69p, Resident Evil 4 at £3.74 as well as Inside + Limbo in one package for £4.58
Hard to argue at those prices.
