Steam, the digital distribution platform which offers multiplayer gaming, video streaming and social networking services, appears to be blocked by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC)

After giving Steam 24 hours to disable the "Fight Of Gods" game downloads for Malaysian users, it appears the MCMC has blocked the entire online gaming platform in the country.

According to the local tech site, Lowyat, the MCMC seems to have deployed a DNS block to the store.steampowered.com domain, affecting all Malaysians using the TM DNS.

At the time of writing, access to the store is being denied on Digi, Maxis, and Celcom.
