It isn't the same - there are changes in script and this one is little longer.

I think her voice is great, doesn't annoy me at all.  I'm usually in the minority about such things and it is fine with me. :)

Is that only a placeholder voice? Is Ellie Conrad Leigh coming back to reprise her role?... (I certainly hope so, I loved her voice work on Dreamfall, much more than the voice used in this video)

She sounds a bit condescending at times like "follow me yeah?" , or the way she tells that she can just catch her again if she falls: It's almost "brutal" at times but with the timbre and soundbody of the voice I have no problem.

I think the intonation of some sentances have to be worked on a bit (do different takes).

I would think so, but we havent heard anything on the subject from RTG as of yet. I think its been said there would be announcements 'soon' but we are still waiting.

Dreamfall Zoe (Ellie) sounds quintessentially English, and like a girl brought up reasonably privileged(as is Zoe's character) and is thus well spoken. The new voice sounds abit like a cockney villain that skipped out on English lessons to beat kids up for their lunch money, and isnt well spoken at all.

Crow: Zoe, you're back!

Oh wow. This voice is very different than the one from the last video and I love it a lot more. Obviously I would want Ellie Conrad Leigh to come back, but if this is the final voice I would be fine with that. I did not like the original placeholder at all.

I am sure she will grow on me, but for now I am also not a fan.

Yes, that is probably just a placeholder voice; but still, I consider it practically impossible that Ellie will return to reprise her role.
 
After several inquiries as to why Gavin O'Connor (Kian) doesn't return, Ragnar offered an alternate explanation:
 

First off, we're recording all the dialogue in London and Los Angeles (and, yes, also New York) this time around — and nothing in Dublin. Which makes it hard to get Dublin-based actors into the studio, without flying them in and housing them, which costs a bunch of money and leaves us with very little flexibility about when to do the recordings. For the lead roles, we don't record everything at once: rather, we go back in the studio maybe a dozen times, and this means we really needed someone who'd be available on short notice.

 
So it's seemingly impossible to hire a central protagonist voice actor from Dublin because of the lack of flexibility... and Ellie now lives in Australia...
 
I had imagined that somehow Ellie's voiceovers could be recorded in two consecutive weeks with a bit of dedication and the pure will to make it possible on RTG's side. But now that we're episodic, now that voice recordings can not in any perceivable way be concise, Ellie is out of the picture, seriously, completely. 
 
I do hope, however, that RTG at least hires a voice actress somewhere close to Zoë's/Ellie's original accent. We have different looks to contend with already, a totally different voice with a totally different accent would be highly immersion breaking. How could we think of this person as Zoë Castillo if she neither looks NOR sounds the same?

 

That the latest trailer doesn't feature Zoë's voice is in a way reassuring in that RTG possibly still tries to find that similar sounding voice actress. But it can't be Ellie.

I see ambient light magically lights up the inside of people's mouths still. How come that's so hard to get rid of? :( Not used to seeing people's wisdom teeth and uvulae all the time.

 

Edit: and did the Vagabond use to have Wonker's voice?
