Hope you didn’t have any big Thursday night Team Fortress plans.
Valve has announced that it will be performing software maintenance on “some Steam servers” this Thursday, February 4. It begins at 6:00pm Pacific with an end “window” of at 9:00pm Pacific. Here’s what’s affected: Steam Community; in-game matchmaking and lobbies; downloading games; and making purchases.
So you’ve got a few options — step away from the computer for a bit, or play one of your Steam games offline. Or take a three hour nap.
