Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: A multiplayer game launches on Steam, instantly becomes the top-selling game, and then its servers buckle under the weight of its own popularity. It’s a story as old as the internet, and it’s exactly what’s happening to Steam’s new survival MMO hit, Last Oasis.

Though its launch yesterday was initially pretty smooth, Last Oasis servers started to get more and more unstable as the evening wore on and more people, presumably, jumped in to start playing. Eventually, everything crashed as Last Oasis’ developers raced to hotfix issues and expand their backend server capabilities. As of 8:30 am PT, I haven’t been able to successfully log in and play the game on North American servers.
