Valorant Night Market (December 2023): Next Release Date and Duration
Ready for another round of disappointment?
The Valorant Night Market is one of the most nerve-wracking features that players eagerly look forward to at all times. It is one of the cheapest methods of purchasing new weapon skins directly from the game but this opportunity comes around ever so often that too for a limited duration.
To make matters worse, the six skins that the Valorant Night Market offers are generated completely at random, varying for all players, who have no control over what they receive.
If lucky, a player might get one or two skins from their bucket list, which in itself is a rare occurrence. But this does not change the fact that it is the best place to get skins of all rarity and types, at heavily discounted prices.
Valorant Night Market (December 2023): Complete Details
For all those new to Valorant or who have not played other titles by Riot Games, the Night Market is based on Your Shop from the popular MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) title, League of Legends.
The model attracted a lot of attention and due to its popularity, it made its way from one title to the other, the feature of players getting random skins at discounted prices simply being replicated.
In case you are wondering when the next Valorant Night Market could arrive, luckily it is less than a week away according to speculations that are doing the rounds in the community.
As per speculations by various trusted data miners, the next Valorant Night Market could go live on 13th December and stay around for the next 26 days.
Valorant Night Market Release Date: 13th December 2023
Valorant Night Market End Date: 8th January 2024
Valorant Night Market Duration: 26 Days
This will be the last Night Market for 2023 that will be released in Valorant and technically also the first for next year, as it will extend into 2024 before coming to an end.
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 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.
The last Valorant Night Market was released on 11th October 2023 and lasted 19 days before concluding on 30th October. This means that the difference between the previous and upcoming Night Market will be 63 days, much shorter than the usual.
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 by 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.
Valorant has been releasing a lot of bundles lately with Sentinels of Light 2.0 and Chromedek winning a lot of praise from community members for different reasons.
Even the recent ones, Overdrive and Run It Back Episode 7, are looking real good and players have shown excitement to purchase them.
This makes the timing of the upcoming Valorant Night Market all the more crucial and hopefully it does not disappoint the players or at least as few of them as possible.
