And like in the movie, which is about a band of immortal warriors, death is not the end – with being killed only slowing a player down. To get the highest score, you have to defeat enemies without getting hit, and as quickly as possible.
Outlining the promotion in a post online, Netflix said: “To celebrate the release of the new Netflix action film ‘The Old Guard’, starring Charlize Theron, Netflix announced a nationwide U.S. competition for an ‘Immortal Netflix Account’ (1000 months of subscription, or 83 years). How do you win it? By obtaining the highest score in an original ‘The Old Guard’ videogame, where you play as a Labrys-wielding immortal and defeat hordes of enemies.
“‘The Old Guard’, based on a graphic novel by Greg Rucka, is a Netflix Original film that follows a covert team of noble mercenaries. When their mysterious inability to die is suddenly exposed, they must fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered. The film stars Charlize Theron who plays Andy (or Andromache of Scythia), one of the oldest and most seasoned immortals on a mission to save her crew. The film also stars Kiki Layne, and is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.”
