Just bought this game and immediately noticed that the sound is only output in stereo. Totally kills the immersion for me, and I'm left wondering how a game released in 2010 has no surround sound support.

I found a post suggesting to use Creative's ALchemy software, however this isn't an option for me since I'm using onboard sound. If ALchemy does work, this suggests the game uses the DirectSound3D API that was made obsolete 4 years ago...if that's true then it's really shameful.

Same problem here, I was sound testing with the tv in the safe house, but only front audio. Thats a real bummer for a shooter like this,

I Have a Soundmax audio card
