These games typically involve a mixture of combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, and narrative progression. Action-adventure games aim to provide an immersive experience that blends thrilling action sequences with engaging stories and challenging gameplay mechanics.

In action-adventure games, players usually control a character who embarks on a quest or mission in an expansive game world. The gameplay often involves traversing various environments, engaging in combat encounters with enemies, overcoming obstacles or puzzles, and uncovering secrets or items that advance the storyline.

Players may use a variety of weapons or special abilities to defeat enemies. Combat is often accompanied by visually impressive animations and effects.

The story often unfolds as players complete missions, interact with NPCs, or discover hidden lore throughout the game world.
