So what is Netflix offering?
Netflix is giving a free subscription for 83 years or 1,000 months, calling it an ‘immortal’ account. All you have to do is to play a video game and score the highest number of points to win this ‘immortal’ account.
The game is based on American superhero film The Old Guard
which features Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, and Matthias Schoenaerts, among others. The film, which started streaming on July 10, is based on Greg Rucka's comic novel of the same name.
How to play this game and win?
Log on to the website oldguardgame.com
and register yourself. The game is browser-based; you play as the lead character of the film and fight hordes of enemies using a double-bladed axe. You will have to be careful not to get killed as it slows you down. You will have to kill as much as possible without getting hit to score the highest points. The contest ends on July 19.
Please note that this competition is available only for US residents. If you are one, hurry up, you don’t have much time to win your ‘immortal’ account!
