What's new in the Apex Legends Evolution collection event?

Collection events introduce the opportunity to earn all sorts of cosmetics in Apex Legends every few months. Often making an impact due to the inclusion of a new Heirloom set, as well as skins and other items, there is also a focus around a specific character that causes a makeover on maps, modes, and so on.
