First Valorant Night Market of 2024: Release Date and Duration
Ready for another round of disappointment?
Valorant Night Market is one of the most prized features of the game that players eagerly look forward to at all times. It is one of the best ways of getting premium skins at a heavily discounted price.
However, Valorant Night Market is not always available and only appears in the game every few months for a limited duration, handing each player a random selection of skins and allowing them to decide whether to make a purchase.
Luckily, the first Valorant Night Market of 2024 is right around the corner and it is only a week away. So save up some cash and find out the complete details below.
Valorant Night Market (January 2024): Complete Details
Valorant Night Market is a feature that has been modeled by Riot Games based on 'Your Shop' from its popular MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) title, League of Legends, creating a chance for players to get their hands on expensive skins occasionally at a heavy concession.
When is the Next Valorant Night Market?
Valorant Night Market generally appears every eight weeks and stays around for anywhere between three to four weeks.
In a recent announcement made by Valorant, it was revealed that the next one would be arriving on 31st January 2024 and stay around for almost the entire month of February.
Valorant Night Market Release Date: 31st January 2024
Valorant Night Market End Date: 28th February 2024
Valorant Night Market Duration: 28 Days
This is the very first Valorant Night Market of the year and will last for almost an entire month, all thanks to 2024 being a leap year
What makes the Valorant Night Market so special is the fact that it comes around every eight weeks, which is equivalent to 56 days or about every two months, but only lasts for roughly three to four weeks.
This means that the actual duration between two Valorant Night Market's is almost 11 weeks to 12 weeks which translates to 77 days to 84 days, adding to the overall wait time in case the cards do not reveal any good skins.
The last Valorant Night Market was released on 13th December 2023 and lasted 26 days before concluding on 8th January. This means that the difference between the previous and upcoming Night Market was just 23 days, an anomaly for sure.
How Does the Valorant Night Market Work?
The Valorant Night Market is a temporary shop that comes with six random cards of different rarities which are unique to every account. Each card contains a weapon or melee skin and can be unlocked by simply tapping on it.
There is some Bad Luck Protection in place and you will get at least two Premium Edition (PE) skins to choose from if you do not already have every single PE skin in the game. You will also not get more than two skins for the same weapon.
Once the Night Market is available, you will be able to view your selection of skins via an indicator in Valorant’s main menu. The Night Market does not include recent skin releases so don’t hold your breath for any skin collections that were released in the past two months.
This makes the timing of the upcoming Valorant Night Market all the more crucial and hopefully it will not disappoint the players or at least as few of them as possible.
