Australia.
As someone who lives in Western Australia, where this game is set, literally nobody sounds like the 'Australian' narrator in this trailer. Possibly Australian... but an Australian trying their hardest to sound as Australian as possible and in doing so completely fails and makes me cringe.
As Infinitron already posted, Jack Charles. Very Australian. This is in the range of his normal acting, even speaking voice. I reckon he's a good choice for the narration, something distinctive at least.

I would never equate Disco Elysium with Baldur's Gate; the former has better gameplay. :M
Frankly though, I do wish for a game like Baldur's Gate to be much more involved on the RPG side. There is just not enough interacting with the world in RPGs in general. I do like Baldur's Gate mainly because it really tried to be an RPG more than Icewind Dale (which is almost strictly a tactical game with RPG ruleset), but it's still not quite enough to fully satisfy my craving.

There have been very few RPGs historically that had substantial C&C, and most or even all of those had terrible gameplay or other shortcomings.

You can smell how cucked it is.

Australians can't help it, their lives specialize in fail.

Not the first time I've seen promising graphics then the game was so empty and lifeless it was not even worth bothering to boot it up.
