The Survivor Timeline is the third game timeline within the Tomb Raider franchise.
Lara Croft Edit
Lara Croft is significantly different within this timeline, as opposed to her original counterparts. Lara's first adventure, was the search for the mythic kingdom of Yamatai, which results in a shipwreck, which takes the place of the plane crash from all the other timelines.
This event is life changing for Lara, which led to her transition from scared young woman to a master Survivalist, however this was just the first step in her journey to becoming the Tomb Raider.
She is portrayed by Camilla Luddington.
So far there are only two games within the timeline. Though a third was inadvertently confirmed to be in developement by Square Enix at E3 2015
A comic book series was published by Dark Horse Comics to bridge the games.
A novel set between Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider was released in 2014.
