With the beginning of December right around the corner, it's perhaps no surprise that many players are wondering if the Night Market is coming back to Valorant.
Valorant's Night Market is a semi-regular event, often popping up unexpectedly to give players the chance to nab deals on an exclusive selection of cosmetics. For the avid Valorant player and cosmetics hunter, the Night Market is strictly an event not to be missed.
The last Night Market went live on Sept. 28 and ended two weeks later on Oct. 11. With November now just about done, many players are likely wondering if we can expect the Night Market to return in December. Here's what you need to know.
Is Valorant Night Market Arriving in December 2022?
The next Valorant Night Market will begin on Dec. 7, 2022, at 7 p.m. ET and last a whopping four weeks until Jan. 4, 2023, at 7 p.m. ET. Typically, each Night Market tends to run for roughly two weeks at a time.
New Night Markets tend to drop between three and five weeks after the start of a new act, either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. Valorant Episode 5, Act 3 was released on Oct. 18.
The previous Night Market dates were:
- Feb. 11, 2021 – Feb. 23, 2021
- April 8, 2021 – April 20, 2021
- June 2, 2021 – June 15, 2021
- July 28, 2021 – Aug. 10, 2021
- Sept. 29, 2021 – Oct. 12, 2021
- Dec. 9, 2021 – Dec. 21, 2021
- Feb. 9, 2022 – Feb. 22, 2022
- April 6, 2022 – April 19, 2022
- May 18, 2022 – May 31, 2022
- July 29, 2022 – Aug. 2, 2022
- Sept. 28, 2022 – Oct. 11, 2022
Ultimately, it should be worth the wait for this latest one to arrive considering that the Sarmad and Reaver, EP 5 collections were added to the Night Market's eligible skins pool at the start of Episode 5 Act 3.
The skins eligible to appear are any that are part of a collection that has been released at least two acts prior to the one the Night Market was opened in.
