Amazon Web Services [AWS] has been suffering outages for much of the day, impacting many of the most popular multiplayer games.
League of Legends, Valorant, and PUBG are some of the games impacted by the downtime today. New World‘s US East server is currently down. The issues are preventing players from logging in to these games, with Uplay and the Epic Games Store also affected.

Amazon says that it has identified the root cause of the problem and is seeking solutions that will mitigate the downtime, but does not yet have an ETA for a full recovery.
“We continue to work toward mitigation, and are actively working on a number of different mitigation and resolution actions. While we have observed some early signs of recovery, we do not have an ETA for full recovery,” Amazon wrote at 12:34 P.M. PT.
In the meantime, there are plenty of high-quality single-player games out there. You can find some of our favorites in IGN’s 2021 Game of the Year nominees.
