he next VALORANT Night Market is set to release in December 2023, in about a week’s time. This upcoming Night Market will be the final one for 2023 and will run for approximately 26 days. The Night Market is a highly anticipated feature in VALORANT, as it provides players with the opportunity to purchase new weapon skins directly from the game at discounted prices. However, the skins available are generated randomly, and players have no control over what they receive.
Despite this, the Night Market remains one of the best places to get skins of all rarity and types. If lucky, players might get one or two skins from their bucket list, which is a rare occurrence. The Night Market is a nerve-wracking experience for players, as they wait to see what skins they will receive.
Players should be prepared for disappointment, as the skins available are generated randomly. However, the Night Market remains one of the cheapest methods of purchasing new skins directly from the game. Players should take advantage of this opportunity while it lasts, as the Night Market is only available for a limited duration.
How Does the VALORANT Night Market Work?
The VALORANT Night Market is a temporary shop that offers six random cards of different rarities, unique to each account. Each card contains a weapon or melee skin that can be unlocked by tapping it. The Night Market comes around every eight weeks, which is equivalent to 56 days or roughly every two months, but only lasts for about three weeks. This makes the actual duration between two VALORANT Night Market almost 11 weeks or 77 days, adding to its value and turning it into something that community members are always excited about.
The Night. Market. Returns!
What do you hope to get in the Night Market?

The upcoming VALORANT Night Market is expected to go live on 13th December 2023, and stay around for the next 26 days, until 8th January 2024. 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.
There is some Bad Luck Protection in place, and players will get at least two Premium Edition (PE) skins to choose from if they don’t already have every single PE skin in the game. Players will also not get more than two skins for the same weapon.
Once the Night Market is available, players will be able to view their selection of skins via an indicator in VALORANT’s main menu. However, the Night Market does not include recent skin releases, so don’t expect any skin collections that were released in the past two months.
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.
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.
The timing of the upcoming VALORANT Night Market is crucial, and it is hoped that it will not disappoint players or, at least, as few of them as possible.
