The next Valorant Night Market is expected to release in August 2023 right after the start of Valorant Champions 2023.
The upcoming Valorant Night Market is expected to last for 19 days.
Here is everything we know about the next Valorant Night Market which is expected to release later this month.

Valorant has different methods in place for providing players with an opportunity to purchase skins and cosmetics at a discounted price. The most popular way is through the Night Market which gives a range of random premium items at a heavy discount.

The feature 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 from time to time.

In case you are wondering when the next Valorant Night Market could arrive, luckily it is less than a week away according to early leaks and speculations.

Valorant Night Market (August 2023): Everything We Know So Far

The timing of the next Valorant Night Market could not have been better as it is starting right alongside the world cup, Valorant Champions 2023, providing players with the best of both halves gaming and esports.

When is the Next Valorant Night Market (August 2023)?

As per information leaked by popular pages, Valorant Updates and Kingdom Laboratories, the next Valorant Night Market will release on 9th August and stay around for the next 19 days.

  • Valorant Night Market Release Date: 9th August

  • Valorant Night Market End Date: 28th August

  • Valorant Night Market Duration: 19 Days

Do take this information with a grain of salt as no official announcement has been made by Riot Games till now. However, it is expected drop soon as we near the tournament's release date.

What makes the Valorant Night Market so special is the fact that it comes around every eight weeks, roughly every two months, but lasts for slightly more than three weeks.

This means that the actual duration between two Valorant Night Market's is almost 11 weeks or 77 days, adding to its value and turning it into something that community members are always excited about.

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 each and every account. Each card contains a weapon or melee skin and can be unlocked by a player simply tapping 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 don’t 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.

The timing of the current Valorant Night Market is debatable because most players will be focused on purchasing the Valorant Champions 2023 Bundle which comes with premium weapon skins that are truly one of a kind.

Its only drawback is the selling price point which is on the higher end of the scale, so there is a chance that players could opt to purchase one of the skins from the discounted marketplace, depending on their luck and fortune.
