Remedy Entertainment has released the Control update 1.12 (1.11 for EU) August 26 patch, and this seems to be the data for the AWE DLC set to be released tomorrow!

Control Update 1.12 (1.11 for EU) August 26 patch notes:

We’ve included the official trailer and 505 Games’ comment on the game’s August pdate.

* An unlockable Multi-Launch ability upgrade to Launch, allowing Jesse to launch up to three objects at one given time.
* Additional checkpoints added to various fights.
* Added Control Points closer to boss fights.
* An all-new Assist Mode, which can be enabled or disabled separately from one another within the Control Options menu. Players will be able to influence several options in-game, including Jesse’s energy and how quickly it regenerates, how soon the Service Weapon reloads, how much damage Jesse takes, how much she deals and more!

As far as we’re aware, this update brings the AWE DLC and that’s about it. Publisher 505 Games announced the following today too:

Control PS4 1.12 and XB1 patches are now live! Please download and update prior to starting the AWE Expansion DLC, which releases worldwide in one hour! PC ver. will be available Thursday at 15:00 UTC. Thanks again for your support and enjoy!

AWE stands for Altered World Event, and I’l let this Control fandom description explain it:

“ The second expansion, AWE, will take Jesse into a new part of the Oldest House, the Investigations Sector, where the Bureau closely examines Altered World Events. ”

“ As Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, Jesse Faden must enter the Investigations Sector and confront the creature lurking within this long-abandoned part of the Bureau. This threat has haunted the sector for years, waiting on the other side of the sealed Firebreak. In order to reclaim the Investigations Sector from its clutches, Jesse will need to explore the numerous Altered World Events investigated here, including one from the town of Bright Falls.

AWE brings new story content and side missions as well as new weapons and mods to the world of Control.

Horror fans who remember Alan Wake, he’s making an appearance in the DLC as well! Once we know more detals regarding this patch and whether there are gameplay-related changes in it, we’ll update the post and let our readers know.

Update: Added trailer and 505 Games’ notes on the Control August update.
