Yes, it will have locale search options.

Also, IW are using the "Ping matchmaking system" from MW2 rather than Black Ops, COD4 & WAW "Find Match Quality."

The MW2 matchmaking puts you in matches that has the lowest ping(aka less lag) while the Cod4 MM system just puts you in matches wherever it is(think BO's "Default" MM preference)

I have to say, I like mw2s system a lot more.

That's if you leave it on Default. You could put it to "Local only" and it will put you in a lobby w/ people around your area, HOWEVER, someone from Japan(for example) can go in a lobby full of Americans and if he get's host he will cause the whole lobby to lag badly. With the MW2 MM, it eliminates that (almost) completly.
